High Water Use


There are numerous reasons why your water use may increase from one month to the next. A malfunctioning irrigation system (most common cause), a change in your landscape watering schedule, aging or defective appliances, a leaky pipe and the weather can all affect the amount of water you use each month. Discovering what is causing the high water use is the responsibility of each property owner.
