Increased Utility Usage

If you are wondering why your utility bill is higher than usual, please consider the following items:

  • Holidays | Keep in mind extra company means more water used.
  • Leaks | A continuous drip or leak adds up over time.  Check your toilets, sinks, or outside faucets.
  • Warmer Weather | Warmer weather means more shows, baths, and outside water usage
  • Water Softeners | Some water softeners use between 200 – 400 gallons each time they are set to regenerate. A water softener should regenerate approximately every other week for a family of four.
