I bet horses drink a lot, too? Neighbors can be sooo nice or be wretched.

The rest of my plumbing problems:

Man from water district just left. He had arrived and examined the meter before calling me. The verdict? We do not know. I had the outdoor faucet knob turned off on the outside and the master on the inside. The meter was not moving. I turned on the washer and the meter moved. Perplexed? So are we. He said I can call a plumber if I want. I wonder if the outside faucet is broken? In the meantime, I will string all.my hoses together and hope they will be able to water the plants in front.

About 30-50 gals per day depending on size, temperatures and exercise level.  Three horses was quite a drain.

Did they check the main line?

That is a lot of water. Much bigger than a bathtub.

Just around the meter. As long as the meter didn't move, he wasn't concerned. He did suggest I consult a plumber on the list the water bureau gave me if I have any more problems. Also, he cut away some big laurel branches. I will not mind if the laurel hedge is taken out. I wondered if I had the Coronavirus everytime I walked out to go shopping. One day I was in a store with good air conditionin. and I realized I felt wonderful! After laurel bloomed the snowball took over. Buddleia and lilac are fine.

Did he check meter flow per minute?  In other words when you use water is more water flowing through the meter than into your house?  I can't remember exactly how, but they measured the meter flow to the volume of water.  Discovered a deep leak in our pipe from the meter to the house.  Our neighbors leak was the same only his was under the road and ours was in our yard.

It was not checked. No water comes out of the faucet, on or off, Inside knob or outside knob. His concern was what made the monthly meter reading go up to 60 when 2 - 6 has been aversge for me. I will do research on outdoor faucets and indoor valves first. I tend to research things as some men tried to rip me off when building.

If they find a leak ask them to forgive the bill.  They would rather see it fixed than have an unusually high charge go for a customer.
