Was shooting out today and noticed that the footpath was wet, also very soggy about 1 - 1.5m from the water meter.
I know we have black plastic pipe, I dont know how old it is, our house was built in 1966 so might be original.
After a bit of digging I came accross what appears to be the old toby.
It was well covered with soil, about 1m inside the boundry and full of dirt.
Lifting the lid off it there are two taps ( only 1 handle ) one for us and one for next door ( we are a duplex )
My gut feeling is that it would be more cost effective / reliable to dig a new trench ( approx 12.5m ) and get new pipes installed.
Would we need to get a new toby installed or will using the water meter tap be sufficient.
