High water usage is usually a valve left on or a toilet stool valve leaking or the water softener continues to cycle. If the water flow is recorded by the meter, the customer is responsible and charged for the water usage. A stool valve leaking is the most common cause for high water usage. Be sure to also check any outside spigots that may have been left on or turned on by mistake.
