An outdoor leak can be very hard to detect, since drips will often simply go into the ground without leaving any trace that there's a problem. To see if your outdoor faucets are leaking, wrap a balloon around the opening of the faucet and hold it in place with a tight rubber band or zip tie. Come back and check the balloon a few days later. If the balloon contains any water, you have a leak, and you will need to call a local plumber to fix it, or learn how to do it yourself by visiting a home improvement website or YouTube channel.
