Water Leak Help!! 911


Did you flush the lines out before you put new valves in? Maybe something got stuck in one of them.





I love helping angry people.

If the heads are still running, and the power is off to the solenoid valves, they should be SHUT. If they are not SHUT, something is stuck in them, or they are not working properly.

Yes all heads leak in those zones!

I find it hard to believe that I bought two bad valves, but could be the case I guess!

Never worked on someone's sprinkler system before. Just using what I know about solenoid valves to get this guy to mellow out and quit being such a rude dog.

I doubt you bought two bad valves. There's something probably stuck in them. Pull them apart again, and flush those two valves for a good 3-5 minutes. If you keep getting crud coming out, then keep flushing until it runs clean.

Good point above. Check to make sure the two solenoids that aren't closing, are receiving power. My guess is that if you slowed the leak by changing the valves, they have power, something is just hung up in there. Nonetheless, still a good idea to check for power.
