Interesting. In that any systems I've worked on this type of month to month change of $1,000% or more would have been flaged and investigated. justthinkin com

You make a good point. The local water company where I live left a calling card on my neighbor's door to suggest he check for leaks when they noticed his water usage had jumped to 15,000 gallons. Since he is a truck driver, away from home, I keep a check on his place for him. I shut the water off and as it turned out he had a leak.

Oops the clerk's bifocals were not Y2K compliant.
