How to check your water meter for indications of a water leak:
First, make sure no water is being used, inside or out. This would include a reverse osmosis system, sprinkler systems, and it might mean (depending on the time of year) shutting off your evaporative cooler.
Once you’re certain no water is being used, remove the cover from your meter and check either the dials, if yours is an older style meter, or the digital read out if your meter is a newer one.
On the older, dial type meters, you’re looking for movement of the dials. You should also see a “water leak” arrow on the meter that spins to record the low volume of water normally associated with a water leak. If the arrow is spinning, you’ve got a leak.
The newer digital read meters may not have a red arrow, but they will still have some type of leak indicator that should be relatively easy to spot.
Once you’ve determined that you have a leak, by turning off portions of the water system and re-checking the meter for movement, you should also be able to tell if the leak is inside the home, or somewhere outside.
