Detecting an Irrigation Leak

  • Check Water Meter: The flow indicator arrow is located on the top right corner of the meter’s LCD screen, if the arrow isn’t moving there is a good chance you have a leak
  • Check Each Zone: Turn each zone on separately and inspect for broken heads and low flowing sprinklers.
  • Check Valve Box: Once you’ve checked each zone, check each valve box to make sure they are dry inside. If they are not dry, chances are there is a leak in that zone.
  • Walk the area: After running the sprinklers, walk the area to look for extremely wet or soggy areas. This is a good indication there is a leak in the irrigation pipe.
  • Monitor Water Bill: A sudden spike in your water bill is a good indication of a leak.
