More Joys of Country Living

Crack in PVC adapter at check valve.  Leak stops when pump shuts off.  The corrugated plastic sheet deflects the spray away from electrical equipment.

Fortunately, the defect was upstream of the check valve.  If it was downstream, the system would continually lose pressure and the pump would be running frequently to refill the tanks.

Make sure your horses have enough water before attempting a repair!
