How to Detect for a Leak

Leaks can be extremely wasteful and costly. It is important that you look in the kitchen, bathrooms(s) and laundry for dripping taps, leaking washing machine and dishwasher connections.  Damp patches on the walls may also indicate a leak.  Outside, check outdoor garden taps/hoses, reticulation including sprinklers (test all stations to ensure that when it is coming on that one of the sprinkler heads isn’t missing and water is gushing out.

To conduct a leak detection test, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Ensure no water is being used in your house (turn off all water appliances, such as washing machines and evaporative air conditioners).
  2. Read the black and red numbers of your water meter (normally located out the front of the property). Record the black numbers from left to right.  The black numbers represent kilometres (1,000 litres) and red numbers present litres.
  3. If the dial is not visibly moving, take another reading after 15 minutes however ensure that you or anyone else in your household is not using any water from the property. I.e. don’t use the toilet, reticulation, taps, anything water related while waiting to read the meter.
  4. If the red numbers have changed, the test confirms there is a leak and further investigation is needed. If a leak is noted, it is essential that you provide us with the full numbers (black and red) from the beginning of the test and the end of the test including the time between readings.
