Dripping Faucet

Why Is My Water Bill High?

Did you have an unusually high water bill last month? Knowing the reason behind your high utility bill is the first step in addressing the problem.  Here are a few reasons why you might be struggling with your water bill.

Why Your Water Bill Is High:

  • You Have a Plumbing Leak – One of the most common reasons as to why you are seeing your water bill skyrocket is because there is a leak in your toilet or a dripping faucet.

  • You Just Filled Up Your Swimming Pool – Seasonal water use like filling up your swimming pool can add to your bill.

  • You Upgraded an Appliance in Your Home – Did you just upgrade to a toilet, shower, or water heater that increased your home water use?  This might be the reason behind your high bill.

  • You Installed a Sprinkler System – Seasonal gardening or installing a sprinkler system can leave your home using more water.

  • The Kids Are Home For Summer – With the kids on summer vacation, they’ll be using more water at home.
