One of the common areas for a water leak at your home or business isn’t inside, but outside. Generally, exterior water leaks in your yard are related to your irrigation system and water lines.
Yard Leak - Underground Sprinkler Systems / Irrigation
A flooded yard is the most common symptom of an irrigation or yard leak. While a yard leak may not seem as serious a problem as an interior water leak, it can be difficult to locate the source. In fact, often the leak is not near the location of the excess water. This can make it difficult for the general public, without plumbing experience, to make the repair themselves.
Sometimes, you might have an irrigation issue without experiencing flooding. If your water bill is suddenly excessively high without a change in water usage, it’s time to call the professionals. Chances are you have a water leak. We can detect if the the leak is coming from inside or outside your home and then make the necessary repairs.
Water Line Leaks
Water enters your home from the city’s water lines, through your water meter and then underground to your home’s shutoff valve. It is possible for this exterior water line to leak and cause exterior damage or flooding to your yard.
Diagnosing a water line leak involves a series of steps. First, you will need to turn off the water at your home’s shut off valve. You will then read your water meter for signs of a leak. Generally, this will help you assess if your water problem is due to a leak in a water line.
If you’ve determined a leaky water line is the culprit, it is time to locate the problem. Most commonly, you will find the issue near the shutoff valve or at the fittings.
