Please help...

Hello team of this old house:

First I have to say that I love your show and I try to see it whenever I can, I am not really a pro-handyman but I like to fix my own problem to save on the cost and to feel proud that "I did it"....

About six months ago, I realize that my water bill are getting very high, I checked all the faucets and toilets...but could not find what is wrong, I live in town home so I do not and any sprinkles or a big ward, so I called a local plumper, he checked again then he went outside to check from the water meter to realize that my meter is connected to another house, I do not understand how this happened and how to fix it.

That's why I turn to your show, if you can help me, I welcome your camera to west palm beach to do a show here. I know with your expertise you can help me fix this problem so I do not have to pay for some one else's bills.....

Please help me, I am unemployed and recovering from a kidney transplant plus I live month to month just to survive....

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Sincerely yours,

Sounds to me like you need to take this problem to you're city or county building dept. or you're utility company. Perhaps you're meter is in a different location. It's usually out at the street in front of you're property, sometimes vegetation can be hiding it. Anyway, you get a monthly bill so take it up with them. Sorry about you're health issue, hope you're doing better now.
