I have no apparent leaks, why is my water bill so high?
Burst pipes behind the walls, leaking toilets or leaking hot water heaters could be some of the possibilities besides leaking taps, that can help you answer where is all the water going when your consumption is the same!
Why am I receiving unusually high gas and electric bills?
A sudden spike in your utility bills could indicate an over-flowing safety valve of your water heating system. Since your system is continuously losing large amounts of hot water, it takes up more energy to reheat the cold water flowing in. More energy consumption automatically results in high energy bills

Why does my hot water system not work as well as it used to?
This is usually due to a sediment build up in your tank. As hot water systems get older, they accumulate sediment and lime deposits. If these deposits are not removed periodically, the sediment will create a barrier between the burner and the water, greatly reducing the hot water systems performance level. The result is an increase in the amount of energy required to deliver hot water
My toilet somehow empties itself of water. Why does this happen?
There are a couple answers to this question, but this solution fixes it almost all of the time. Poor venting or no venting of the toilet fixture. Vents allow for airflow to the toilet sewage system. Without the vent, air pockets form in the waste branches, which cause what, is called back-siphonage. The air in the system, without a vent, can only escape through the sewer and drags the water in the trap with it.
