The farm where I keep my horse has water lines to the field, BUT, you have to get on your knees on the ground and reach into the hole where it is to turn it on and off. I’m not thrilled with doing this, so have been looking for ways to make this easier. Thought I’d ask here and see if anyone has the same issue and found a clever solution.
I suppose the plumber did it that way to protect from freezing the pipes - so that’s a concern with any fix we come up with.
Some ideas so far are to get a ‘grasper’ device, but it would have to be strong enough to turn it on and off and not bend the ‘thing’. I’m also half-tempted to get it plumbed up to the surface, but then what do you do to keep it from freezing in the winter? *The ‘thing’ is like what you find at a water hose line at your house - looks like a wheel.
Any genius tips?
