Why is my water bill so high?
There are various reasons for high water bills. Often, the cause is related to a sprinkler system as sprinkler systems can use up to 60 gallons of water per minute, per zone. You can read your water meter before and after using the sprinkler system to get an accurate usage for lawn watering. Water leaks are another reason for high usage. A leak 1/32” in diameter can use 180 gallons in 24 hours, 5,400 per month.
