Receive a high-water bill? Generally, the culprit is a toilet. Since you live in the home and are responsible for its day to day upkeep, pay attention to whether a toilet and other water sources are running constantly. A drip in a sink won’t markedly affect your water bill, but a running toilet, even one barely noticeable, can increase your bill tens of thousands of gallons (and $100s of dollars) over a very short period of time. Toilets can have this happen to them at any time and keeping an eye and ear out for signs of a running toilet is an important part of living in a place of your own. Be on the lookout for a constant or intermittent sound even when the toilet is not and has not been in use. These noises are always a good indicator. But the reality is sometimes the trickle in a toilet is so quiet that the first thing you will notice is, well, a high-water bill.
