Looking for a irrigation system leak sensor? Is there such a thing?

I have an Orbit Wifi B-hyve controller and a three zones manifold (three inline valves). I am looking for a way to determine if the water flows through the irrigation system when it should not (ex one of the valves fails or there is a crack in the system and the water leaks through that) I am not very comfortable with the idea that I will have PVC in the ground parallel with my house. This could leak and cause a basement flood before I get to know (I night time leak or while I am away could be disastrous not for the amount of water wasted but for water leaking into the basement (old house -might have foundation cracks I do not know about) What is a standard solution in situations like this ?
