Water Leaks??

I got this email from a friend and it was too funny not to share! There is a video link after the story! Enjoy!

Jennifer and Jim kept getting huge water bills. They knew beyond a doubt that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and no matter how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued.. Although they could see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or problems: the water meter, outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, etc., all to no avail. One day Jim was sick and stayed home in bed, but kept hearing water running downstairs. He finally got out of his sick bed to investigate, and stumbled onto the cause of the bills. Apparently this was happening all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would believe him, he recorded a video of the 'problem' for posterity:

Because I'm weird like that, I counted 10 flushes in that 2:47 time frame! The comments by the videographer are funny too! Mystery solved!

My kitten, Java, (who lives in my bedroom because my other 2 cats hiss at him every time I let him out) loves to watch the water go down the toilet whenever I flush. Luckily I have a well and don't have to pay for water if he ever figures out how to flush it!

Java is 4 months old and I've had him since he was 2 weeks old when his mother died. My manicurist found him at his mechanic's garage and gave him to me to hold while he did my nails. An hour later, I was driving home with a kitten and 2 cans of kitten formula.
I just wish Cameron and Mason would accept him.

In case of a leak, a geophone will detect the leak through the sound and it will then amplify that sound so that you will detect the sound yourself when you listen carefully for underground movement.
