If there is a leak before the zone valves, then your meter will spin. That's how I check my system if it's leaking. If the leak is after the valve, the meter will not detect it.

Do you hear a slight hissing sound near the valves? Even if not, if you suspect a leak, have you checked to make sure the manual override screws on top of the valves have not worked loose? They may need new o-rings too.
