Leaks are relatively easy to recognize when viewing your water usage data.
- Log in to the Alert Labs Dashboard
- Click your property listed on the main page
- Click on water usage
Leaks are most apparent from the bar graph at the top of the page.
Adjust the settings at the top of the bar graph so that you have 1D (one day) and MIN (minutes) selected. This will grant you a detailed view of your property's water use. You can adjust your view further by using the + and - at the top of the graph to zoom in or out, respectively.
While viewing your property from this detailed level, you should be able to see all water activity.
Most households have chunks of time when water isn't used (overnight or hours when work and school overlap). If you see steady, unexplained water usage (i.e. it's not an appliance with a scheduled task), throughout this time, there is likely a leak in your house.
It could be leaky toilet (most common culprit), or tap, or shower head. Or you may have a fridge or furnace with a problematic water feed. Click here for help finding a leak.
