The sound of water dripping or running can be difficult to hear, especially if it is underneath a concrete slab foundation. Depending where the leak is located subtle sounds of water can be heard and can indicate a leak.

When you find an unexplained wet or damp spot on a wall or floor

Warm areas on the floor can occur when the hot water pipe has a leak. While leaks in cold water pipe are more difficult to notice, you may also feel wet or moist area on the flooring.
