Videos: Indoor survey demonstrations

Watch our how-to videos to learn how to perform several tests to check for leaks and flow rates. 

  • Meter leak test: Reading your water meter is one of the best ways to identify a leak. Your water retailer can help you find your meter box, and how to open it if you can’t find it near the sidewalk in front of your home.
     
  • House line test: Find if leaks are indoors or out. 
     
  • Measure sink and shower flow rates: Figure which appliances are ready for an upgrade.
     
  • Toilet leak test: Check your toilets for leaks with leak detection dye, available with the DIY Water Wise Indoor Survey.
