I am working on getting my houses dip irrigation system working again.

I've turned on the water to our back yard and the system pressurizes, however there are no visible drip tubes, no visible leaks, nothing, so I dont know where the tubes are under the ground. Plants were removed years ago so the yard is just a barren wasteland.

I dont hear water running at the mains either, which tells me that its pressurized, but blocked somewhere.

Without digging up the entire polyethyline pipe from start to end, is there another strategy to figure out where it could be blocked?

Electrician's fish tape and metal detector. Shove the tape in the end of the tubing and trace it with the detector.

Is there a timer in the system that is preventing water flow ?
