Should water be running through your pipes all the time?

Some hot water systems are designed to give you instant hot water. This is achieved by using a small pump to constantly circulate hot water through the pipes in your home. If you have an instant hot water system and you want to check to see if this is the source of the running water, find the hot water circulating pump (probably in the vicinity and downstream of the hot water heater) and turn it off. If you still hear water circulating, you should check further as you may have a leak in the cold water system. Hope that helps.
