Electric pump placement for irrigation system

Building a new home and builder runs the 220V line just inside the crawl space for well pump placement. Should I have it run to put pump in the garage or leave it in the crawl? Concerned about not being able to detect a leak.

Electric pump placement for irrigation system

Where are you located? Keep in mind, that if you are in a cold climate area, the pump & associated piping will freeze in a Garage. Also, you will know when the pump is running or not. If it runs continuously, and no valves are open anywhere in the house at sinks, tub, shower, toilets, yep you may have a leak.
