If one breaks, chances are you'll be able to find it...unless it just jams shut.

Get a piece of 2" tubing, preferably something flexible...turn on the water. Walk around with one end to your ear and the other end to the ground, approximately in line with where you think the lines/valves are. You'll hear the whooshing when you get within a foot or two of it. I found two valve boxes in the front yard of my house that control two of the lines in the back yard

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
