Also can you put in 3-4 inch pipe with a trencher? If so what models.
1) Turn the water off for a while, let the soil dry out.
2) Check the meter for movement with all sources off. might be a leak in domestic.
3) hire a soils engineer rather than try to guess the issue away.
4) yes on the trencher but not very well. an engineer will work better and relieve you of liability.
