Common Reasons Why Your Water Bill Has Suddenly Risen

Have you noticed a sudden spike in your monthly water bills? It might be easy to explain if you’ve made a change in your water usage habits. Perhaps you have more people in your home, like guests coming in for a visit or kids who are out for the summer. 

But what if you haven’t done anything different lately? What else could cause your water bill to rise? In this post, we’ll explore the most common culprits behind a surprising spike in water bills. 

Leaking or Constantly Running Toilets

By far, leaks are the most common cause of water waste in a home. The biggest offender is a toilet that constantly runs. While it may seem like just a minor annoyance, in reality, a leaking toilet can drain away hundreds of gallons of water with every passing day. Toilet leaks have the potential to double your water usage, and your bill will reflect that. 

Leaks in the Showers, Sinks, or Appliances

Even something as simple as a dripping faucet (which seems annoying at best) will waste twenty gallons of water or more every day. If certain appliances such as your water heater are leaking, that will also cause spikes in your bills. 

Dealing with Leaks Once and for All

The right plumber can help you manage your water usage by testing your water pressure and inspecting and repairing any fixtures or appliances that might be leaking or running inefficiently. In turn, this can save you money on your utility bills! 

When you work with the team at B & B Professional Plumbing, you’ll be amazed at how much more efficient we can make your plumbing systems. If you’re tired of wasting water and want to find a solution that lasts, call B & B Professional Plumbing today!

Had a water leak coming down an interior wall. Mike, Chris & Scotty were able to quickly assess and locate the source; then efficiently made repairs. They replaced a section of vent stack that was cracked; a difficult task but they were excellent. And they left the work area clean.

Tom and Normandy Woodward are SUPER PLEASED with each step of B and B working with us to tackle many issues over the past two months. I have to say that at the top of our list in outstanding persons/help are Rocco the Overseer of Operations (amazing), Frank Garcia and his partner Matt (awesome), Brian the scheduler (top-notch) and Norman Nickelson (a gentle genius who brilliantly solved a persistent problem). These guys are as professional, courteous and efficient as I've ever seen.
