Signs You May Have a Water Meter Leak

Your water meter is located outside, and usually out in your yard, which makes recognizing a leak at the meter more difficult. Most of the time, signs of water meter and yard line leaks are subtle, but they could be costing you a lot in wasted water. It’s a good idea to check out your water meter periodically for signs of water leaks. This is the best way to avoid hidden leaks and maintain the health of the meter.

Some of the more obvious signs you may see when a leak is happening are:

  • Puddled water around your water meter
  • Water trickling straight from the meter
  • Sudden increases in your water bill

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

Most homeowners aren’t seasoned experts in dealing with water line leaks in their yard. But that’s what we’re here for! If you don’t see your question below, get in touch with us today.

Technically, the main water line encompasses the water meter, which measures the water coming into your house, the pipe carrying water to your home, and all valves, joints, and connections in between.

Beyond your water meter, any problems are almost always your responsibility, NOT the utility company’s. That’s where Earl’s comes in! We’ll be happy to help find the source of the leak and repair your water meter to get your water turned back on and safely transported into your home.

Factors that we will consider include:

  • Whether or not we can determine the precise location of the leak
  • If the line is traceable (which will depend on whether the line is made of metal or plastic)
  • If there are any major obstructions such as trees or structures
  • Whether you have ever had a yard line leak before
  • The type of material your water line is made of and how old it is

Our team is available to answer any of your questions and hear your concerns at any time during the process. Contact us today for more information about main water line leaks.

Other water meters can be found on the side of your home, so take a look around if you’re not sure where your meter is located.

Inside the water line is a mechanical impeller that rotates as water pushes past it. The meter is designed to measure the flow rate of the water, based on the rotations of this impeller. This is how the city knows how much water enters your home, but they can’t tell how that water is used or if it’s leaking out before it reaches you!

Some require only a screwdriver or a pair of pliers. Others require a special water meter key that can be purchased at most home improvement stores—it looks like a long rod with a “T” or a handle on one end.

Once the lid is opened, you’ll see the meter. It will either be a triangle or a black-and-white pinwheel. When the triangle or pinwheel moves, that means water is running through the pipes. Unfortunately, this will only tell you that water is running toward your home, not if any of the water is leaking on the way there.

This is where a professional plumber is essential. Our team brings specialized cameras and pressure tools to identify leaks in your meter or pipes that you can’t see.
