We are all about DIY projects….just not when they are done wrong. I’ll give them a A for effort but one bolt later and they still had a leaking system. A PVC cap would have cost about $1 dollar and the repair takes a few minutes once it is found. There are several different tricks of the trade that will make your job and life so much easier. Morale of the story here…do it right the first time. A little piece of info to keep in mind as well in terms of dollars saved by doing it right. If a leak is not fixed and allowed to leak all day from a single cracked pipe like this one, you could cost yourself over $100/month is additional water on your bill. Give us a call or send us a message if you have any questions about fixing anything in the yard.
