    I suspect my system has a stuck valve. I have a general idea where the valves are located but would like to minimize the chance of hitting the line. Any suggestions on how to find the valve box?Thanks

    Follow the wires and the input water pipes...

    It will be where they happily meet, or close.

    Enjoy your project.

    Thanks I found the valves. Is there any easy way to determine which one is the stuck valve?

    Thanks for your help. Dug along the input pipe. Cleaned out the valve and problem is fixed!
