Blown Out Backflush Valve

I am new to sprinkler systems. I blew out the lines last fall but forgot to turn off the water valve going outside ... consequently, my TORO backflush valve started to leak. I am wondering if I need to replace the whole thing or just the parts inside (spring and some plastic pieces)? When I turn the water on and open both valves on the unit, water pushes out the top.

Thanks for your help.

Blown Out Backflush Valve

You can replace just the parts. You may find the parts cost more than the valve. However replacing the whole valve could be a project depending upon how the current one is installed.
