If nobody is going to be at home during the day today, take the opportunity to check if your home has any unknown water leaks. Before you lock up the house, take a reading on your water meter that indicates how many gallons you’ve used. Then when you return home after a few hours, check the reading again. If the number is the same, you’re in good shape. But if the number has risen by a few gallons, you likely have a leak somewhere. Common culprits are leaky toilets or outdoor faucets, where drips can go unnoticed.
