Gotta be a leak.  Hope they. check the main water line that serves your entire neighborhood.  We had a main pipe in Scottsdale get a leak and they had to tear up the street!  If you only use under $50 a month it's unlikely one neighbor could steal $200 in one month as an example.

No one would"steal" it.They would just turn it on. One neighbor is a very early riser. Walked his dog here early in morning. One day I heard him tripping over my ladder in my back yard. He is not a nice man. I think money went to his head.

My DH can tell when our outside water is running.  Ask plumber about a lock for your outdoor faucet.  We had one on ours during one bad neighbor time who used our water to water his horses.

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.
