Water Leaks:


Leaks are often the culprit for unexplained increased consumption. The amount of water lost by a leaking pipe depends on the size of the hole, the size of the pipe and the pressure of the water. 


Did you know?

  • A leak of just 1 drop per second loses 4.26 litres a day.

  • A leak of 2 drops per second loses 13.88 litres a day.

  • Drops breaking into a stream lose 90.84 litres a day.



Check for leaks:

  • Check for dripping taps and fixtures. 

  • Toilet leaks are the most common. Look in the toilet bowl and ensure the water is not flowing. 

  • If you're a farmer, check the ballcock regularly in your troughs.
