Time will tell. Hopefully that's the culprit.

Re: My Office Remodel.


Seeing the irrigation leak reminded me of how a plumber I've worked with told me to use the meter to check for a leak. On the meters here in San Diego they have the numbers in an odometer like window and below that there is a small triangle. The small triangle measures really small amounts.

He would shut off the water, mark right next to one of the triangle points and then come back a little later and see if it had moved. If it had there was a leak somewhere.

Anywhoo, congratulations on finding the likely culprit!

Yep, I played the "mark the micrometer game". Thought I didn't have a leak. That's because it only leaked when the sprinklers were on, underground 6 days a week!

Thanks for your help I learned stuff anyway.

On all our jobs. It's amazing what 5 minutes to set up a tent does for you when working.

Up here I can do anything I want to my house as long as I own it. They still want the permits and inspection of course.

Of course he used copper.

They were all out of jewel encrusted gold pipe.
