Water leaks on any property or fixture are not only a nuisance but can be very costly and a drain on one our most important resources. With average rainfall getting increasingly lower, it’s extremely important to fix leaks as quickly as possible. Doing so can also help to prevent damage to your property.
If you suspect you have a leak but there is no visible water around your property an easy way to find out is to do a check on the meter.
- Step 1: ensure no water is being used anywhere on the property. Turn off all dishwashers etc.
- Step 2: Take a meter reading—read the black and red numbers from left to right—and check if the red numbers are moving or not.
- Step 3: After 15 minutes, take another reading. If the red numbers have moved this will confirm that a leak is present.

Gas leaks not only cost you money but they can be dangerous to your health and property. While some small gas leaks will not pose a problem they should still be investigated and fixed as soon as possible. A small gas leak in a confined space such as underneath a stove top or in a cupboard has the potential to turn into a bigger problem with disastrous results.
