      It is our well, our pipes, on our property. I'm pretty sure the leak is not in the house. We've isolated off the longest run past the house, but we have something like 400' of still suspect buried pipe - oh, and also no map for where the pipes actually are. Fun fun fun.

      And yes, we know there's a leak because our last pump, from the tank to the house, doesn't shut off unless you close the valve in front of it. And as soon as the pump goes off, you can watch the system pressure go down, down, down.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
