Why is my water bill so high?

There are two reasons why you water bill may be high. One factor could be that your household is simply just a high water comsumer and you may have to investigate how you can lower your consumption. An example of this may be to install low flow shower heads or dual flush toilets. The second reason could be that you have a leak. This leak could be in the form of leaking taps or a toilet that keeps running. Over time these leaks can consume a large amount of water and money, so it is very important to make sure everything is working properly.  In order to detect a leaking toilet, because you can’t always hear it running, we suggest putting a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank before leaving for work or going to bed at night.  If the toilet is leaking into the bowl, the food coloring will come thru to the bowl and you will be able to see it.
