If you have higher than normal water usages you could have a plumbing leak. Possible problems include: toilets (sometimes they run silently), water heaters (check for leaking), faucets (in warmer weather this may include outside faucets) or water softeners (may be recharging more often). One easy way to see if your have a problem: Read your meter right before bedtime and once again when you get up. If you use more than 10 — 20 gallons overnight, there is a problem.
