i've only been in the house since feb so this is my second bill (bi-monthly billing). the first one was higher than i would have expected but i thought maybe it was from past charges on the house or something, or maybe i was in denial. still i searched for a leak and couldn't find one so i just waited till i got another bill to see what it would be, and this one is even higher. i got the bill just before i left for work so all i can do is try to think up what to try tomorrow. the only thing i know to try first is maybe throw a few bug bombs in the crawlspace, then crawl in and look for a leak. i've also read and been told to try turning off the water and seeing if the water meter still moves to see if it's the pipe to the house. i don't think i've noticed a water meter, just the one for electricity. i've also been told to look for a spot where the grass is growing faster and greener, but we've had little rain lately so it just happens that i've been looking at the yard (and having to water flowers and things) and it's all pretty uniformly dry. the whole thing is scaring me some since i know pretty much nothing about plumbing and i'm still recoving from the house purchase, which means very little cash for a plumber. any help and/or advice would be appreciated. thanks.
