in Water Bills

Had our water meter fitted in July 2019 as only 2 in the house now , saved a fortune , in the first 6 months used 33 units ( this was last meter read)
Read meter yesterday and meter was saying 84 units , so in last 3 months has used 51 units !!!
I could see the external meter was turning the far right digit even with nothing on in the house
So turned off internal stop tap and in 1 hour it went from 84 395 to 84 499 so approx went up 100
Just checked this morning and now reading 85 900 so have used approx 1.5 m3 in 12 hours , thats a lot of water
Have reported to water company who is coming tomorrow
The water meter hole (in pavement) is about 10 inch full of water , but from what Ive read its normal for meter hole to have water in ?
Praying that the fault is with meter and not in supply pipe in my driveway ....
Any thoughts / help appreciated
Many thanks Steve
