    Low pressure

    Turn off the water in the house and also the sprinkler system if it is on a seperate branch. Go out to the water meter and watch it to see if it is moving. If it is, then you've got a burst line.

    Great idea! The cutoff will be right under the bottom drawer of our middle cabinet. I can bring it up with a 90 and cap it just under the drawer. Thanks!
