While we were at Disney World in January, someone stole our water from outside our house. Our water bill runs about $80 a month (thanks to the wonderful sewer surcharge) and the bill for January was $198! We asked them to come out and read the meter again, and unfortunately it was correct. Our February bill was issued and it was back to $80 a month. Go figure….
We have 2 good reasons to believe it was stolen and I am pretty sure who did it…. but the point of the post is to find out how to keep this from happening to us again.
I was looking on Amazon and they have a lot of different locks that you can put on your outdoor faucets. I have also heard that you can turn your water off when you go on vacation, but I also heard that it was bad on your water heater to do that….?
So if you have some tips, please share them!
