A Palm Harbor homeowner contacted I Find Leaks in regards to a water leak detection needed in their home. The Palm Harbor resident noticed a substantial rise in their water bill over the past several months. A typical water bill for a single family home with two people should be around 5500 gallons of water usage per month. This particular property was using over 10,000 gallons of water per month. This is a very high water bill compared to what the normal water bill should be. Palm Harbor water bills can be very high if a water leak is present. Water leaks can be located underneath the concrete slab of your house and will never show any signs of leaking water inside your home. As you can see in the pictures below, this water leak was located underneath the concrete slab in the garage. Plumbing pipes can leak under slabs without you ever knowing, causing very high water bills. Leaking water pipes can also cause water damage and mold growth if left unattended.
