Signs of underground leaks include:

  • Unusually wet spots in landscaped areas and/or water pooling on the ground surface.
  • An area that is green, moldy, soft, or mossy surrounded by drier conditions.
  • A notable drop in water pressure/flow volume.
  • A sudden problem with rusty water or dirt or air in the water supply (there are other causes for this besides a leak).
  • A portion of an irrigated area is suddenly brown/dead/dying when it used to be thriving (water pressure is too low to enable distant heads to pop up properly).
  • Heaving or cracking of paved areas.
  • Sink holes or potholes.
  • Uneven floor grade or leaning of a structure.
  • Unexplained sudden increase in water use, consistently high water use, or water use that has been climbing at a fairly steady rate for several billing cycles.
