Why is the water bill high?

Leaking toilets and faucets, malfunctioning water softeners and water powered sump pumps can cause most high water bills. Plumbing fixtures should be checked regularly. Check the toilet flush valve by adding food coloring to the flush tank and observe if color is present without flushing, concluding the flapper valve likely leaks if color is present in the bowl.
