As winter fades and snowbirds head north from Florida, an unexpected consequence emerges: increased water pressure in the state's infrastructure. The influx of seasonal residents during winter prompts water utilities to maintain higher pressure levels to meet demand. However, when these residents leave in spring, the surplus pressure remains, straining aging infrastructure and leading to leaks.

This surge in water pressure poses challenges for both old and new neighborhoods alike. Aging infrastructure is particularly vulnerable, with weakened pipes susceptible to ruptures and leaks. Even newer areas face risks as the heightened pressure can exceed design limits, causing unforeseen damage. Proactive measures such as regular inspections, maintenance, and pressure management systems are essential to mitigate these risks and ensure a resilient water distribution network.

Community education is also crucial in addressing the issue. Snowbirds and permanent residents can contribute to sustainability efforts by promptly fixing leaks, using water-efficient appliances, and practicing mindful water usage year-round. By understanding and addressing the impacts of seasonal population shifts on water systems, Florida can work towards a more sustainable and resilient future.


There are several different reasons that a water water bill could increase.

The number one reason for an unknown increase in the water bill is underground leaks. Often underground water leaks can occur under the home, deep underground. These leaks are called " Slab Leaks ". Slab leaks can happen without giving any symptoms that they are happening, until the high water bill shows up. Alerting us that there is a problem.

Most homes in Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough County have water lines made of copper pipe that can run deep underground, under the home to feed hot and cold water throughout the house from one plumbing fixture to the next. Often these pipes run deep underground in what is called a loop system. Over time "Pin hole" leaks can occur in the pipe. in one of the loops. They usually start very small and increase in size over time. If the pin hole leak is deep underground? The water from the leak will be absorbed into the ground without being noticed until the high water bill shows up.

If you have a high water bill or If you believe you may have a Pin hole leak underground in one of your loops we can help or if you would like more questions answered please call 89 leak Detection at 727-656-4292
