Testing for Leaks
A leaky faucet is pretty obvious, but hidden leaks (in the toilet or outside in your landscaping) can waste a large amount of water.
To check for leaks, perform the following procedure:
- Take a reading of your water meter.
- Wait one hour, making sure no one uses any water. This includes irrigation, your water heater, and other source beyond taps and toilets.
Check the reading on the water meter again.
If the reading has changed, you've got at least one leak.

- 1 cfs (cubic feet per second) = 448.8 gpm (gallons per minute)
- 2 acre feet per day = 40 miners inches
- 1 Cubic Foot = 7.48 gallons and weighs 62.4 pounds.
- 1 Million Gallons = 3.069 Acre Feet = 694 gpm/day
- 1 acre foot = 43,560 Cubic Feet = 325,851 gallons
- 1 ft. = 0.433 psi
- Acre foot x 325,825 = gallons of water
- One acre foot covers one acre of land with one foot of water
