Why has my water bill gone higher than normal?There are many reasons for a water bill to go higher than normal without your knowledge. The number one reason for an unknown sudden increase in the water bill is: Underground water leaks. Underground water leaks can happen under the home in some cases without giving any symptoms that there is a problem. Until the high water bill shows up. The reason for this is most homes in Florida have water lines made of copper pipe that are laid underground under the home to supply hot and cold water to each plumbing fixture in the house. These pipes generally hold approximately 40 to 60 pounds of water pressure in them at all times to supply water at the ready. Over time small leaks can occur. Aka "Pin hole leaks" deep underground allowing the ground to soak up the water without being seen. Causing the water bill to go higher than normal.
