Extremely High Water Bill
I got my bill from East Bay MUD and was shocked when it said I used an average of 1300 gallons per day, up from last year's 61 (which I still think is kinda high, actually). That's 80,000 gallons for a two month period! Even so, $400 for that much water is kinda cheap, really.
I live alone, and I think I'd notice if someone or something were using that much water. I have no irrigation, no swimming pool, I don't even wash my hair every day. No one around here has a swimming pool either.
They came out to check the meter and said it was a correct reading and right now I'm averaging 106 gallons per day. The meter was not moving so there are no leaks. No one has touched any plumbing. I can hear it when the water is running, since the house supply valve is next to my front door.
Did a 1300 gallon per day leak suddenly fix itself? I think it's a scam. Their phone system, which I've been on since starting this post, just hung up on me. Here's another person who had the same thing happen to her:
