Finding Leaks


Whether inside or outside your home,  a leak can waste hundreds of gallons of water each year. Any leak, big or small, costs you money and should be repaired as soon as possible.

To determine if you have a leak, turn off all water fixtures and appliances in your house and be sure no one is using any water. Look at your water meter. If the small, red, diamond-shaped indicator on the face of the meter is moving, you probably have a leak. Retest to be certain, then locate the leak by inspecting all pipes, fixtures and appliances that use water.

Please do not open outdoor meter pits. Customers with outdoor meter pits should contact SUEZ North America directly.

To help customers combat leaks, SUEZ plans to install 450,000 smart meters over the next five years. A smart meter records water consumption data in real-time, allowing more precise information on usage, as well as better detection of leaks. Our daily consumption reports reveal abnormal consumption and allow us to react quickly to prevent property damage.
