Water Leak Checks

A slow leak of seven drips per minute from the faucet can waste up to one gallon of water in one day. That’s roughly 365 gallons per year! A leaky shower faucet dripping at a rate of one drip per second can waste more than 250 gallons per month! While some leaks are obvious and can be fixed quickly, others go undetected driving up your water and wastewater costs. Leaks that occur between the meter and the house are the responsibility of the homeowner. Leaks from the meter or pipes leading from the main to the meter are the responsibility of Jackson Energy Authority. To check for water leaks, try the following options:

Slow Leak Test

Water Usage Comparison

Toilet Tank Test

Swimming Pool or Spa Test

Water Supply Checks

Fixture Checks
