Rising Water

Yesterday spent most of the day working on the tidying of the south bed I had thought that it was very wet in places and then when removing Shasta daisy seedlings from the terrace bed I discovered the soil was very wet beside the tap and on more exploration  that around the tap was very wet. The problem has been solved now and even today the soil has dried out a bit am hoping this leak repair will reduce the amount of water we've been using fingers crossed we've sorted out all leaks now.

Glad you got it sorted.

We all seem to limp from frozen pipes and no water, to well-hidden leaks and sodden ground! I found one of the garden hose connections had split with the frost and created a mini-swamp!

Good job you noticed that leak before it ruptured further down the line.

Hope it is sorted now.
