Action 5

In Alice Springs we look for hidden leaks using the easy two step ‘hidden leak test’ at least once a quarter

Use a handy reminder to complete a quarterly ‘hidden leak test’ such as when your Power and  Water bill arrives.


Ask people in your home or business not to use water while you do the test.
Step 1: Take a reading of the two right hand digits on your water meter.

Step 2: Wait 10 minutes – remember not to run any water during this time. If after 10 minutes there has been any movement in your meter reading, you have a leak. Even the smallest movement in your meter reading can add up to a lot of water over a year.
