The water to the barn was put in many years ago. I just got the hydrant replaced and there have been two leaks that needed to be repaired going to the barn in the last two years. As soon as I got the hydrant repaired the next day ugh looks like another leak to dig half way to the barn.
I had asked a plumber if the line was under too much pressure as the water shoots out if the valve is fully opened , so I got scoffed at. Anyway I am looking at the set up in the house and the water to the barn looks like it is direct from the pump and not from the water tank(where I understand there is some pressure regulating). I am going to have to schedule another visit since I am beyond digging out and hanging halfway down a hole to fix. If I raise this again is there by chance any validity to my thinking the line is under stress and if so what is the fix?tia
