Water leaks or leaking pipes are not always obvious, but they can often waste water and increase water expenses. Most water leaks are easy to fix, while others may require a professional plumber to correct.

Water Companies are usually responsible for repairing water leaks on the water meters and water main lines.

Property owners are typically responsible for the service lines, which run from the home all the way into the main usually towards the street in most cases.

If you suspect a water leak from a water meter or water main or want to request an inspection, contact Denver Water Customer Care at 303-893-2444

How to find Water leaks:

Most water leaks can be heard or even seen, but some can be very hard to find. Checking your water meter may be the most useful tool in figuring out water leaks on your property. The water meter only operates when water is flowing into your property which can help indicate an issue.

Suggestions to follow to check for unseen water leaks:
Before you begin, make sure no water is being used outside or inside of your home.

  1. Locate the water meter.
  2. Locate the water supply shut-off valve for your home. It can be outdoors or indoors and is commonly located where the main water pipe enters the building foundation, usually just inside.
  3. Turn off all faucets, outlets and any appliances that use water.
  4. Look for the gallon calculating sweep hand on the water meter and note the position. After about 30 minutes or longer, take another look at the dial to see If the hand or the number wheels have moved. If so, you have a leak either inside or underground. Close the water main shut-off valve and look to see if the indicator stops. If it does then your leak is inside the building.

Toilets are the highest leaking culprit in most homes, so check your them and faucets to ensure you’re not wasting water.

If you find that the indicator continues to move when the water shut-off valve is closed, you have an underground water leak between the meter and the shut-off valve, which needs to be repaired.

Most water meters have a small, red triangle or gear-shaped indicator that will show very small water flows. If that indicator is moving after you shut off the valve, you have water running somewhere or leaking.

Leaking Water from Toilets

Toilet water leaks can waste many gallons and often times are silent but over time can add up to a lot of money. Even a small leak can produce a lot of wasted water. Fortunately, most toilet leaks are easy, fast, and not expensive to repair.

To help see if you have a water leaking toilet, lift the tank cover and add a few drops of food coloring or a dye tab in the back of the toilet tank. (You may buy dye tabs from any local home center or hardware store). Wait for about 20-30 minutes, without flushing, and then look in the toilet bowl to see if any color is leaking from the tank. If the water is clean and clear, water is not leaking through. If you see coloring then that indicates that you have a water leak.

Flapper Valve Water Leaks

The most likely reason for a water leaking toilet is a flapper that is not sealing correctly. Flapper is a name for a rubber valve in the bottom of the tank that is lifted up when the toilet is flushed. If the flapper is worn out or even cracked, it can allow water to flow from the tank into the toilet bowl without activating.

Toilet Flush Handle Issues

If you notice that the toilet handle needs to be jiggled to stop the toilet water from running, the chain, flush level bar, or the handle itself may need adjusting. Try adjusting the nut that secures the toilet handle in the toilet tank. If that does not help, then the toilet handle or parts may need to be replaced.

Overflow Tube Leaks Water

The proper water level should be set so that is about even with the fill line located on the back of the toilet water tank (about ½” below the overflow tube). If the water level is too high in the toilet tank and it is spilling into the overflow tube then that is a problem. The water level in the tank may be adjusted by turning the adjustment screw so that the water turns off at a level just below the overflow tube.

Leaking Water from Faucets

Water leaking faucets are generally a result of a worn or well-used rubber washers. The rubber washers on a sink lever are usually located under the handle. These are relatively easy to replace, with the correct tools.

Underground Water Leak Detection

Visually look around to see if portions of your property are wet constantly.
Look at your curbs, driveway, or street for evidence of water presence. The evidence may not be a constant stream of water but rather, it may only be a puddle that never dries up, or a darker spot, like on dry concrete.

George G. did a thorough and excellent job for us by first finding where the shut-off valve is in our basement, which isn't obvious and after 36 years in the home, it wasn't where we expected it to be. He then replaced the shut-off valve to our new refrigerator. However, rather than replacing the valve with the same type of valve it originally was equipped with, George updated the valve with a better quality and more accessible valve. In addition, George took precaution to use a fire resistant cloth while sautering copper pipes together. George is professional and has excellent skills. He looks out for the client.

Anywhere rooter fixed my sewer, they figured out the problem when 5 other plumbers could not. It is really nice to not have to worry about sewer backups anymore. Turns out I had a broken sewer connection in my yard. They dug it up, fixed the connection and repaired the slope on the line so it would drain properly. Put everything back together and did a nice job of cleaning up. I would recommend them

Kimball and his crew were absolute pros. Great work at a fair cost. Able to get a very extensive job done on time and we’re able to get underway almost immediately. Also flexible enough to modify job as facts presented themselves over course of the project. Would 100% recommend.

We have lived at this same home for 47 years. Little did we know that the Main Drain under the basement floor to the Septic Tank was in very bad shape. Frank, Kimball, Chad, & Ulysses came through for us in diagnosing the problems, cleanout in a timely manner, and total repair of the old iron pipes by insertion of the new technology liner that adheres to the inside of the old pipe making it new, again. And, they put two stacks outside for future drain cleanout access. The price was "pricey" for us; but, fortunately we did work through all that. We are most thankful that the work was done before winter and it comes with a Lifetime Warranty document that is transferrable should we ever sell the house. We would recommend these professionals.

Anywhere Rooter came out to repair my sewer drain piping in my basement and check the sewer line as well. Kimball and his assistant did a professional job with top quality work, excellent communication and inspection as well. The pricing was excellent and they bent over backwards to work with me for costs so that I can get the sewer line fixed from the house to the road in just two weeks. I highly recommend Anywhere Rooter, Kimball and his assistant. Top of the line and affordable with a great loan company to boot if you need that too. Thumbs up!

Kimball was amazing! He was at our house less than 24hr after my initial call, even though we live in a rural area most companies refuse to service. He did a great job replacing our garbage disposal. Highly recommend!

Anywhere Rooter did a great job for us. Kimball and his team were easy to work with. We had already moved out of state and needed sewer work done for home inspection items. They understood our time urgency and did everything quickly and professionally. He was in contact with us about what was happening and what needed to be done to finish the job so we could close the sale of the house. Great job, thank you.

For two years I had been trying to find the source of a septic leak that was filling my sump with liquid. I've had multiple camera inspections of the septic line, all of which came back inconclusive. Kimball was the first one to find the exact spot of the leak, offer a solution and then have his team fix it on the first try. I admit it was not an inexpensive service, but these guys were super fast in their responsiveness to the issue and in getting the problem resolved. The team that came to fix the issue was on time, professional and did exactly what they said they would do with no mess to my house or property. I was very thankful to have found these guys and I'm happy to report that my sump is free of liquid again. My septic line is repaired and lined against future breaks so I'm very pleased with the job that Anytime Rooter did.
