In an ideal world, you would be notified of a problem with your plumbing long before there was an issue. Unfortunately for many Brooklyn residents, plumbing issues do not usually announce themselves, and you’re left troubleshooting the issues that could be affecting your home’s water.

One of the first signs of a potential plumbing issue is an unusually high water bill. High water bills do not always mean that there is a problem, however. If your water bill is higher than usual, or if you have seen a steady increase in your bill for several billing cycles, you may have to consider your own behaviors and how they may have contributed to a higher than average water use, including:

  1. 1.Recent Changes in Your Water Use –Situations such as prolonged guest stays, filling a swimming pool, or a change in the season can affect your water use.
  2. 2.New Equipment That Uses Water – New equipment such as washing machines, sprinkler systems, or freezers can increase your water bill.
  3. 3.Issues With the Meter – Your meter could be faulty and need to be replaced, or you may have a new meter that runs better and more accurately shows your water consumption.

These are some common scenarios that you should consider when trying to determine why your water bill is so high, and can be altered with a few lifestyle changes.

But if you have tried to reduce your water use only to see that your bill is still high, chances are the problem is a leak.
