How The Pros Find Sprinkler Stop & Waste Tubes


Okay, guys, it’s time to shut your sprinklers off. As we’ve talked about in a few other videos, if you have a stop and waste the tube in the ground, you stick the key down in the ground and turn the water off. Sometimes it can be hard to find sometimes they’re overgrown with grass, here is a way here’s a fairly easy way, this is what we do. This is what the professionals do to find out where it is. So I’ll flip this around. So what you’re going to want to do, you’re going to want to find your water meter, this is the main water to your house. Typically, this will run in a straight line right up to the house. So what you’re going to want to do is start right here and within you know, 12 inches of either direction. This is probably somewhere along this line where the stopping waist is going to be. So what I like to do is grab a screwdriver and start poking around, kind of at a slight angle. And if you hear you’ll be able to hear it hit the tube hit the hollow tube. That is exactly how we find it the easiest way so you’re not having to dig around, you know, poke around forever. That screwdriver is going to save you plenty of hope this helps. If you have any questions, let us know. Otherwise, have a good day.
