Sprinkler valve leak?


Hello,

I recently had a sprinkler system installed in my backyard along with new sod.

I've noticed that the area where the valves are located looks wet. Granted that since it is new sod, my contractor leaves the sprinkler on for ten minutes or so, and could be that the water from the sprinklers is hitting the area.

My concern is if there is a leak that I should be worried about (especially since they are located next to the foundation.) Please see the picture.

Thank you.

Have you tried running your sprinklers on manual to see if a valve is leaking??
