Water softener; help
Posted by Michael on April 02, 2004 at 00:44:42:
I just got my water bill. It was estimated in December, January, and February, at $46 per month (I live in Indiana where we do have the winter season w/snow sometimes).

I got the March bill- $1065. Ouch.

I think the problem may be my water softener, but want some advice. It seems to run a lot, but I didn't think much of it because I thought the way it works is the water runs through there, and is kind of "held" until it gets run through a faucet, shower or toilet.

Could a water softener that runs constantly be causing something like this?

Related note- any advice on how I can get the bill reduced?

If I had gotten an actual meter reading several months ago, the bill may have been a couple hundred $- certainly enough to get my attention and get this checked out, but not over $1000.

thanks
Michael
