Summer Water Bill Too High?

Become your home's detective to solve a high water-use mystery.

It's the heat of the summer and you get your water bill in the mail — it's a big one, maybe higher than you've ever had before. You look around your home and and think that nothing's changed. You don't hear running water or spot a large puddle.

What gives?

Large amounts of water can sink into the ground without any evidence left behind — especially if you live over the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone or near a green space. Then consider that most sprinkler systems can use up to 3,000-plus gallons every time you run them. And, finally, there are multiple home fixtures that can drain water straight to the sewer without a trace.
