Water Water everywhere... I Hope Not!

Monday, robot_grrl got a phone call from the Village of Bartlett reporting that the water usage on our house in Bartlett -- which is rented out through the end of this month -- had a greatly increased water usage. After a bunch of phone tag we know:
  • The usage increase since the last actual reading was (IIRC) over an order of magnitude!
  • The renters are still using the house -- although none are there at the moment
  • When our Realtor drove by today, there was no water pouring out of the house

So, now we need to get our Realtor and the foreman of the tenants -- or another tenant -- together at the house to see if they can track something down. The next step will be to get the village water department out there to see if they can find something. We know that this is beyond a running toilet or 5 men taking multiple showers each day. At this point I'm guessing -- and hoping -- that this is a glitch in the electronic water meter. But I'm not sure how to prove it if there isn't a physical reading on the meter as well.
