KPUD will repair any leaks in the portion of the water system we own, which in most cases ends at your side of the water meter that connects your home to our main. The service line to your home, as well as the plumbing in your home, is your responsibility. We will help you diagnose a mysterious leak in your system and answer any questions you might have about how to get it fixed.
Place a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait a few minutes. If color appears in bowl, you have a leak.
Use your water meter to check for leaks:
- Locate your meter.
- Turn off all water using appliances in the home.
- Check and record the current meter reading.
- Wait 15 minutes (overnight is better). Don't use any water.
- Read the meter again. If the reading has changed you have a leak.
