Went up to the mountain house last Friday. Around 9AM the County Water District called asking if I was using a lot of water for some reason They said I had used 56,000 Cubic Feet since the last reading. Now I know that I have been watering the lawn and filled up a new hot tub but 56,000 no way. So I went to the main water meter down at the end of my driveway and I could hear the meter spinning as soon as I got close to it.
I opened the cover and the dial was spinning so fast I thought it would take off. I immediately shut off the valve that supplies the irrigation system and it stopped spinning. I searched all around and could not find the leak so I went back down and turned it back on. That's when I found this.
And then there was the fix.
