Gus has worked on client renovations and new construction for more than 25 years. He specializes in landscaping, landscape maintenance, and landscape construction. Gus Briones Landscaping Specialist Expert Response: It appears that the PVC pipe is leaking and your irrigation system is malfunctioning. If it’s underground, you’ll need room to excavate the damaged pipe. Using some sharp PVC cutters, you should cut the area where the broken pipe is located. Furthermore, you could purchase the appropriate couplings and possibly the pipe needed to build or repair that section if you visit your neighborhood home improvement store or home goods store. Additionally, you should purchase some PVC primer and glue. After cutting out the damaged section, you can lift your PVC pipe because you have already excavated around it. Take a fresh piece of pipe, apply some PVC glue, and attach the couplings to it. Next, simply carry out the identical action on the other side, where you will be genuinely joining your new water pipe to the old water pipe. Finally, you just need to give the glue about half an hour to cure. Before covering your excavated trench, turn on your water once more and look for any leaks. Then you should be good to go! .
