Gate valve was leaking so I spun the nipple out and plugged it off.

I had to take a bunch of documentation pics for this site. Most don't have any redeeming vaue to any of us but i had to prove or disprove the presence of the domestic water as the source of the water in the first pics.

Could be a peristalsic pump. Positive displacement. Flex tubing looped inside a cylinder, while a gear-motor moves rollers over it, pinching shut the tubing, and pushing the contents downstream.

What ever it is it looks like had mixed in exact amounts.

Cool pics. 3/4 Mile long ditch with water in it.. Must be a huge leak if it is one.. That does not look fun

Any luck so far ?

I'm done, everyone's happy and the owner wants the utilities mapped before doing his cleanup and repairs and restoration. He just bought the orchard that land locks this former gun club and wanted to eliminate future problems from neighbors.

Jobs like these are less about finding the source of the water and more about proving that you're not creating the the problem. I managed to prove that the water wasn't coming from the domestic well, found a few small leaks and eliminated them.

The pressure tanks are holding now and it's quite obvious that the domestic system wasn't losing enough water to create and maintain the surface flow.

I think I mentioned it before, I think it's a spring. They're common in this area.

Looks that way since it says "dosing" on it, Maybe an old school fertigation system?
