After having my sprinkler system winterized, I noticed water leaking from the spigot. I thought it would stop once all the extra water came out but it is still leaking after 1 week.
I turned the spigot to the off position and after about 30 minutes I noticed a slow leak coming from somewhere on top around the back flow area. Right now I have the spigot turned back on so the leak will come out from the spigot instead.
The main water shut off to the sprinkler system has been shut off from inside.
- What can be causing this slow leak?
- What can I do to stop the leak just for winter without having to do any crazy repairs? In the picture its leaking from the red circle because originally the spigot was open to release leftover water. But the slow leak never went away. So I shut off the spigot and notice slow leaking coming either from the yellow area or blue area. It is hard to tell since my wall is wet. But to me it looks like leak from the blue circle. So right now I have my spigot (red circle) leaking . And hasn't stop for a few days now. : https://i.stack.imgur.com/73ixC.jpg![enter image description here](https://i.stack.imgur.com/cbOMx.jpg)
Another key note is the main sprinkler water valve inside the house is shut off and well as another valve closest to the wall of the sprinkler pipe is shut off as well. So two valves on the same pipe inside the house. Those don't have any leaks but I'm hoping they don't need any repairs?? I thought those would be preventing any water from going outside to the system.
Inside shut off valves are both off and not leaking. Another member mention this might be the issue. They are both not leaking. Since being shut off for winterizing.
