Water leak- plumbing
Water leak behing the main idols behind a wall
In the lazerette.. Anyone have an idea or solution.
At this point, I've removed the wall but still can't find the
Source of the leak or how to fix it!

Perplexed and frustrated,

Water leak- plumbing

Water leaks

If you pay for your water on a meter and suspect your bill is high, this might be because there is a water leak or overflow. You may be paying for water that’s going to waste.

Find out what to do if you suspect you have a water leak and how to work out who’s responsible for fixing it.
How to spot water leaks

It’s possible you may have a water leak if:

you hear the sound of running water
you see running water or wet areas
you see a lot of plants growing near pipe work, especially during dry weather
the water pressure in your home falls.
thank you.

*Benefits of Leak Detection and Repair?

The economic benefits of leak detection and repair can be easily estimated. For an individual leak, the amount lost in a given period of time, multiplied by the retail value of that water will provide a dollar amount. Remember to factor in the costs of developing new water supplies and other “hidden” costs.

Some other potential benefits of leak detection and repair that are difficult to quantify include:

increased knowledge about the distribution system, which can be used, for example, to respond more quickly to emergencies and to set priorities for replacement or rehabilitation programs ;
more efficient use of existing supplies and delayed capacity expansion;
improved relations with both the public and utility employees;
improved environmental quality;
increased firefighting capability;
reduced property damage, reduced legal liability, and reduced insurance because of the fewer main breaks; and
reduced risk of contamination.
thank you.
