How do you find a water leak?

Water leaks can be tricky. If water is visible on a wall then it could be necessary to cut into the wall to find a leak. Listening in a very quiet house may allow you to hear a spraying leak. If a leak is suspected because of a high water bill, look at the water meter. The small dial moves when water runs. Shut off cut offs under the sinks and toilets and the water should stop running. Turn them on one at a time and watch until the meter tons again. There is your leak.

Unless you dug the whole line up you probably wouldn't find the leak unless it was a very large leak which would bring the water to the surface, You would be better off just installing a new line. Call a leak detection company. They will find your leak to within inches, and you will be able to dig down, repair the line where it is broken, and repair it.

What could cause a constant loud whooshing sound in the water pipes like rushing water even when faucets are closed and there is no water leak anywhere?

You may have a leak you dont know about. Check with the Water Utility - somtimes they will come out for free. Yep, they will. If you hear water and nothing is turned on, you have a leak. Shut off your water from inside your house (shut-off is located where your water line enters the house). If the whooshing goes away, the leak is inside your house somewhere. If it still makes the sound, the Water Utility will shut off the curb stop. If the whooshing stops, then the leak is between the curb stop and your main shut off (ie. there's a leak in your main service line coming into your house). In general, it will be your responsibility to make this repair as it is on your side of the curbstop. If the sound persists, it is coming from the public water main and Water /utility Crews will locate with a stethoscope and make the repair at no cost to you.

How do you use pressure to find leak?

If you are looking for a leak, and you can build up the pressure inside the thing, there are two ways you can find the leak pretty effectively. You can either submerge the object under water (if it won't damage the object), and look for bubbles rising through the water from the leak. This is very effective for finding leaks in inner tubes and tires, for instance. If the object can't be submerged underwater for some reason, then apply a little soapy water to the areas that you suspect the leak to be. If you see soap bubbles growing, that is where the leak is!
