Help! Our private water company says we used 240,000 gallons of water in 30 days. We live in Phoenix, AZ (desert). There's no standing water on the ground, plumbers have verified we don't have any leaks, the meter was read correctly, we were home (just the 2 of us) all month so no-one stole the water. Is it possible for a 15 year old meter to just advance 240,000 gallons when the water did not go through the meter? The water company is replacing a lot of pipes in the streets on their side of the meter. Could all this construction cause our meter to malfunction? We need help. The bill is almost $900. Thanks
