Last year on this date, I was dealing with a water leak in the front yard. It was quite cold, which was (not so) perfect weather for outside work involving water and mud.
All I needed to do is find where the leak was and figure out how to fix it.
Unfortunately, the water was coming to the surface uphill a bit from the actual leak site, so it took a while to find the source.
It was cold enough to need a temporary shelter while I was getting to the leak site and determining how I might fix it.
The leak wasn’t due to faulty installation by the fellow who put the line in – me – but, rather, a crack in a coupling in the PVC water line.
The fix was actually very easy. The home improvement store in town had a leak repair kit using a fiberglass wrap.
Once the fiberglass had set, the supply valve was opened to see if there was any leakage – and there wasn’t any, nor have we seen any indication in the year since.
