When it comes to the safety and efficiency of your irrigation system, having a functional stop and waste valve is crucial. This valve acts as a safeguard by allowing you to safely tie your irrigation system into your water main. However, if this valve fails, it can result in the costly waste of water and potentially cause damage to your landscape.

The stop and waste valve, also known as the stop and drain valve, is typically located near the meter or main shut-off valve. Its purpose is to allow you to isolate a section of piping to make repairs or drain water from the system. This valve works by turning the valve handle to the “closed” position, which stops the flow of water, and then turning the valve stem to the “drain” position, which allows any remaining water to drain out.

If your stop and waste valve fails, it can have serious consequences. Not only can it lead to the costly waste of water, but it can also cause damage to your landscape if left unaddressed. This is because the water left in the pipes can freeze and expand, resulting in cracked or burst pipes. Additionally, water pooling around the valve can lead to soil erosion and damage to your lawn or garden.
