Need Help: Sprinkler system leaking


My sprinkler system is leaking. I replaced the diaphragms on the valves, but this has not stopped it. Any help would be appreciated.

It is leaking from the sprinkler heads.

If leaking from more than one head, I would immediately look at the line PSI and determine if it's too high

Re: Need Help: Sprinkler system leaking


i had that same issue and just replacing the diaphragms seal on the valves didn't work, i had to replace the whole thing ( valve) the valve is cheap $15 and comes with a new solenoid, but the label is the time consuming part.

Make sure they are screwed in tight.

They break and come loose after they are hit from lawnmowers and being walked on.

That wouldn't make them leak when the system is off. The control valves are allowing water to pass when it is not desired.
