How to Identify if you have a leak in your property!

One of the easiest ways to identify a leak is by checking your water meter. Most properties have water meters that are designed to warn you in the case of a leak. When checking your water meter look for a small red or blue triangle, if your water system is running and water is flowing the triangle should be spinning. To check for a leak, you should turn all the faucets in your property off and make sure that no water is running. Check the meter again, is the triangle still spinning? If you have a leak it will continue to spin.

If your water meter is older and doesn’t have a leak detector triangle on it, it is still possible for you to use it to check for leaks. You can do it by following these simple steps:

- Check your water meter and write down the numbers that it displays. 
- Switch off all the faucets in the property and make sure no water is running for half an hour. 
- After waiting for half an hour with all the water systems off check the water meter again. If the numbers change you most likely have a leak. 

If you have a leak you should call a professional company like GTA Restoration so that we can help you identify it and solve it. Don’t delay, not solving this problem will lead to much worse and expensive issues!
