Irrigation System -- Repairing Leaks

Repairing Leaks in Drip Tape

Here is an excellent video on repairing leaks in drip tape:

The connectors are in the irrigation box in the lower left cabinet in Garden 1.

Janice recommends:
- If you can cover the leak with dirt and it doesn’t wash through, that is adequate (redirecting the water).
- If the spray is strong enough to wash away the soil, it needs a connector repair.
- Tapes with 3 connectors should be replaced at refurbishing time.
