Why is my usage always an even number?
Usage is calculated in whole thousands. For example: If your meter reads 362,422, your meter reading on your bill would be 362,000 and the remaining 422 gallons would be reflected on the next bill. This way our system bills out in whole thousands.
My usage seems high this month, why?
Several things can increase your usage in a month. Here are some to keep in mind:
- Some water softeners use between 200 - 400 gallons each time they are set to regenerate. A water softener should regenerate approximately every other week for a family of four. Warmer weather means more showers, baths and outside water usage. Holidays - keep in mind extra guests means more water used!
- Possible leaks - toilet, sink or outside faucet.
