Determining the Source of Your Yard Leak
Main water line
Look for your home’s main water shutoff valve. This is often found in the utility area of your home or near your outdoor faucet. Once you’ve found the shutoff valve, turn it off to cut off your home’s water supply. Next, go to your water meter to check if it’s still running; if the meter continues to run, there is likely a leak in your main water line.
If there is a leak in the sewer line, it is most likely caused by intrusive tree roots that have started to grow in your pipeline.
A simple way to find out if the leak in your yard can be traced to your sewer line is to flush a small amount of food coloring down the toilet; wait about 30 to 60 minutes, then go to the affected section of your yard to see if food coloring appears in the leak.
To check for leaks in the sprinkler system, you will first need to find the sprinkler system box (this will often have a green lid). Inside is the ball valve that will cut off the water supply to your sprinkler. After shutting off the valve, check the water meter reading for any leaks.
