Tracking your water use is important for a wide range of reasons. For one, it can tell you whether you are consuming more water than normal, which tells you there could be a problem with your home’s water pipes. To see how to determine how much water you are consuming, watch this video clip.

The water meter, which can be found either in the front or back of your home, tells you how much water you are consuming. Once you locate the water meter, use a screwdriver to open the box lid and then flip open the water meter lens cap. On the water cap you’ll find the usage amount and a leak indicator that spins when there is a leak. Watch the video for more tips on reading the water meter and identifying a leak.
