I have a yard hydrant next to the wellhead in my yard. There is a pool of water around it coming from below the surface. Since it's coming from underground, is it most likely a broken fitting rather than something worn out on the hydrant itself? If so, is it possible to dig it up and repair as a DIY or will professional digging equipment be required?
I have three of those things and mine have the supply pipes buried at sixty inches deep. Don't know that I would want to dig down sixty inches to access a leak without the benefit of some power equipment.
