Post is going to be a little long, but some of it is my fault and inexperience with paying attention to leak issues.
Since we pay the bill automatically, I did not realize that it was continually going up until I opened it the other day. $450--
There are only 2 ppl in the house! So I went on a mission to fix leaks. I noticed the toilets had made noises in the past but it would go away.
I noticed one leak where the toilet was continually filling and draining out the refill tube..I have shut off the water to that toilet and will replace tomorrow with a new kit. Builder put crappy (IMHO) flush kit in all toilets.
I replaced another toilet with a new flush kit today. AND I knew about a leak in the bathtub, BUT it wasnt that bad and only happened after showers UNTIL I put a glass underneath and left it overnight and the glass was full. Called Kohler to get a replacement, after about a week recieved parts that did not fit the shower. (if any one knows where I get new rubber seals for K-304-K shower kit plz let me know; Kohler did not know what that number meant). So in the meantime, I used the sealant that came with the kit and put it on all the rubber rings. This slowed the leak TREMENDOUSLY, but it did not stop it completely, now the glass on fills about 3 in a day.
At least I learned something from all this, watch that water bill! I do have a question, if all of this cost about $40 to fix do I have any hope the water company will help with bill (lou, ky).
Lastly, I do notice that my grass is also greener by the meter. I read another post about checking the meter so I will try that tomorrow as well.
Thanks for reading.
