For those that vacation during the winter months especially, leaks that develop inside or outside the house can remain unnoticed until a large water bill, or a flooded basement. There are a number of useful products on the market to alert you in case a leak develops, while also helping you keep an eye on your water usage.
Some products are made to sit on the floor behind the toilet for example and detect water leaks, others strap to your meter and give instant awareness of water flow, while still  others require plumbing into your system but give you additional advantages like automatically shutting your water off when a leak is detected.

Here is a link to help start your search for one that meets your needs.
