We left town for a couple of nights Easter weekend and came back
to a flooded front yard. I marked where the water was coming out of
ground, then turned the water off. Water Dept. won't fix it (it's in
yard), my homeowners insurance and american homeshield both told me
they could'nt help, so I'm stuck trying to fix a major problem with
little knowledge of plumbing and a tight budget.
I called a plumber for an estimate, and before they came out, I dug
2ft. wide hole about 30 inches deep where I had it marked, thinking I
would hve the pipe exposed for them, but I found nothing. They
told me the leak could be coming from anywhere in a large area of the
yard,so I need to dig a 12inch trench along the entire front of my
until I find where my water connects to it, and then I would need to
a trench straight to the meter, and they could come and lay the pipe.
I'm sorry for rambling, but I was hoping someone out there can give
some hints on finding the area where the water pipe connects to the
house, or any other information that would be useful. Thanks so much ,
