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.

THE TWO STEP ‘HIDDEN LEAK TEST’

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.
