A pipe leak locator can locate the spot very easily. The longer it leaks the higher your gas/electric and water bills will be. If it is an electric water heater the constant operation will cause the elements to burn out quicker, and in any case, you will eventually reach the point where the water is leaking so rapidly that the water cannot produce hot water, even though it is running constantly.

: Near the hot water heater, front and back bathrooms, you can hear water running. Water bill is higher than usual. Advised by plumber that there may be a broken water pipe under slab of the house. The house was built on 65 piling with copper pipes. There are no wet spots inside the house or walls. My questions is, if there is a leaking pipe, how do you find out where it is located. One Plumber suggested cutting part of the walls by the hot water heater, washer, and bathroom to check for the loop. One suggested that we wait until some spot in the house get wet. We are not worried about the house sinking because they are on pilings. Water pressure is fine and no drainage problems. We need help.
