Check for water leaks

Learn how to read your water meter to see how much water you use or to check if you have a water leak.

To check for a water leak:

  • Turn off all taps in your house.
  • Write down all the numbers on the dial of your water meter.
  • Don't use water for at least a few hours. We recommend overnight.
  • Before you use your water check the dial on the water meter again. If any numbers have changed you may have a leaking pipe, tap, toilet cistern, solar hot water service or other appliance or fitting.

If you have a leak, you should call a licensed plumber to identify and fix the problem.

If you would like to keep track of your water usage, download a water meter diary (below).
