If nothing is noticeable, add some food coloring and put a couple of drops in the tank (not the bowl). Wait several minutes and if you have coloring in the bowl, you have a leak in the flapper at the bottom of the tank that is allowing water to seep through.افضل شركة كشف تسربات بالمدينة المنورة

If you can't see the meter head, try digging around because they sometimes have dirt or grass covering the top of them.   Once you locate it and the valve is turned off by the house, watch the meter to see if is turning.
If it is still turning, then the leak is between the meter and the house. That is, unless you have a leaking valve, and this very common with these older bronze gate valves. Then, your leak may also be inside the house.

At this point, walk the area between the meter and the shut-off valve. Look for signs of a leak such as: soft muddy areas, grass that is greener than the rest or growing much faster than other areas. If you see such an obvious sign, call the plumber or assess if you can make a repair yourself. افضل شركة تسليك مجارى بالرياض - افضل شركة تسليك مجارى بالدمام
