Where is the water leak?

If you've ever spent time on a large desert ranch you know the trials and tribulations of water - water lines, finding values, locating leaks, windmills and such...and sometimes you just have to get dirty to get it fixed and hope you've got the right parts! This photo was taken around 7 PM - We had returned home around 6 after building a half mile of barbwire fence ready to relax and eat dinner instead we had no water at the house and a leak in the corrals! Whether it is replacing a float in a water tank, figuring out a pressure problem or fixing a leak - plumbing is an important component of running a ranch! Who needs dinner?
