When it comes to outdoor water leaks, irrigation valves are one of the first places to look.

Irrigation valves use moving parts to control water flow. Over time, the continued operation of these parts makes the valve more vulnerable to leak.

When an irrigation valve leaks, the water leaks out of the valve itself or out of the lowest sprinkler.  These types of leaks can cause water waste, drown plants and even cause property damage. It is important to fix leaking valves as soon as you can.

Our video shows you how to make this simple repair so that you can keep using water efficiently and keep your plants happy.
