    In an apartment complex with 20 buildings served domestic hot water from a central boiler in a recirculating system, is there a way to check periodically for underground leaks?

    Thank you!

    Do each building have one water service with a working service entrance valve?
    Does the recirculating system have working shut-off valves ?
