You have puddles in your basement or crawl space
Check for corrosion or moisture on exposed pipes, as well as mold and mildew nearby.
Your water meter box is moving after you turn off your water
A sure sign of a leaky pipe is the use of water when it is turned off.

What causes leaky pipes?
Leaky pipes in your home can result from any number of factors. Pipe leaks most commonly result from:
Corrosion from rust and harmful chemicals
This will affect the quality of your water and eventually lead to leaks and cracks.
Too much pressure
Pipes are designed to only withstand a certain amount of pressure before giving out to leaks and cracks. High pressure in your pipes is usually caused by clogs, so it is important that you keep your pipes and drains cleaned.
General wear and tear from faucet and appliance use
Faucets that are used many times a day and appliances (refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines) that have a lot of moving parts that work together are prone to causing pipe leaks and cracks.
