A good way to determine if you have a water leak is to first decide when water is not likely to be used in the household, a good time would be when everyone is sleeping or gone for work. Check the water meter at the beginning of the time-frame, and then at the end of the time frame. The water meter should be the same reading or only slightly off if you have an ice maker or other appliance that uses a minimum amount of water. Having a large difference between the two readings will indicate that there is a water leak somewhere within the lines.
Many will attempt to find the water leak themselves, but with the vastness of possibilities it is highly recommended to hire a plumber to truly pinpoint where the problem is located. Though possible to purchase a device to help locate a leak, it is not recommended as they can be hard to analyze and not very effective. High quality leak detection instruments deal with spectrum analyzing and frequency filters and truly takes properly trained plumbers to read the results properly.
Be prepared to answer some questions from the plumber. Questions such as hearing noises under surfaces or walls, or if a usually cold floor has warm spots, and if there is any area in the yard that is suddenly wetter than usual. Leak detection is not only scientific but a lot of common sense as well, and being willing to answer the questions posed will go a long way in finding the source of the issue.
