Customer Question
My sprinkler line has...

My sprinkler line has a small hole in it. How do I️ fix it without digging the hole pipe up?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Don’t know how long, I️ just found it. The pipe is probably 3 inch and the hole idS about the size of a 1/4 of a dime

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I️ want to try as I️ just had sod delivered

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Don’t think so. Oh yeah I’m a female and don’t really like to mess up my nails. Ha
