Detecting In Ground Valve Leaks
In ground sprinkler and valve leaks can waste water and damage your yard and garden if they are not identified and quickly repaired. Unless you installed the irrigation system yourself, it can be difficult to know where the lines and valves are located under the ground of your yard.
Depending on the size of the leak, you may be able to spot the location of the leak from above the ground. You may notice large wet spots, mould or a sluggish sprinkler head. But, since the valves and pipes are located underground, you may find yourself digging up your yard to no avail.
