Posted by Kathleen on February 17, 2003 at 20:20:30:
2" pvc waterline approx 1/4mi to city line. City said leak. Put cutoff near house. Meter 1/4mi away stop/so leak(13,000-16,000gal/mo)in front yard/under house. Nxt 5mos. water bill ok. Then meter constant spin 45,000 gal/mo for 3 mos. Meter install close to house 8x less thn corner. Shut off by hse/corner meter still run. Our leak move frm under house to field? Plumber probe/no leak(we're at end of line)Install checkvalve meter spin back/forth.put new meter/problem stop. Both meter run same. City says applying 60psi air pressure seal leak/when line moves leak will occur..is that so?
