Question about Plumbing
I have an under ground water leak where they conected a tee for an outside water hydrant, The hydrant is about ten feet from the main line and I think its leaking at the tee. What can expect to find when I dig it up and what will I need to fix it? Hope you can help sincerly Norm
Norm, I expect you will find a one inch or three quarter inch pvc line running from the meter or pump to your house. If you dig fie feet fore and aft of the affected area you should have enough flexibility in the lines to make the repairs. Yoou will probably nee two to three slip by slip couplings and a tee and elbow of the appropriate size and a short length of pipe. It really depends on where the break is but more then likely it has occurred just behind the hub of the tee. You can possibly gain enough flexion in the lines to reduce parts cost but remember putting something in a state of stress already will greatly increase the possibility for future failure in the area again. Below is a picture of what I think you will find aand how I the repair will look.
