A leaky water hose could be the culprit behind a number of problems with a residential sprinklers system.
In a survey of residents in England, it was found that almost half had a leak and that around a third of them had had to replace the system.
It’s not the first time a sprinkler has caused trouble for homeowners.
The first sprinkler to be tested in Britain was introduced in 1958, and it was quickly blamed for the flooding of nearby homes.
But the water supply in the area was not kept up to date with the changes to the network.
Now the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has taken over the sprinkler project, with the aim of fixing up any problems.
They are now trying to find out how to ensure that sprinklers are working properly.
“We’re still trying to understand the system and the behaviour of the sprinklers,” a spokesperson said.

However, the spokesperson said that this was an ongoing problem, and that it would be a matter for the Department of Environment, Agriculture and Rural England to work with other parties to try and solve the problem.
We are aware that we have a leak in one of the homes and are working with a contractor to try to get a replacement system installed as soon as possible,” she added.
There have been other problems that have been caused by the system over the years, including a water tank that was leaking in a garage and a leaking hose in a house.
What can you do about a leak?
If you or someone you know has a leak, you can use the Home Inspection and Maintenance Service’s (HIMS) water safety kit to check if there are any problems with the system or any of its parts.
HIMs are licensed contractors that can work with private homeowners to install a system that works.
They can also be hired to inspect a property to make sure there is no water damage.
If there is, you should contact your local authority and make sure they are aware of the problem and how to get to it safely.
If you suspect there is a leak or a leak is causing problems, you could contact your council or the local water supplier.
