I've been trying to set up a drip irrigation system in my small backyard. I bought a 3-outlet orbit irrigation timer, and have been trying to get it hooked up to a drip irrigation kit. I already had vacuum breakers installed on my outdoor faucets. When I connect the orbit timer to the vacuum breaker outlet and turn on the faucet, I get a small leak at the connection. Because of the leak, I can't leave my faucet turned on, and hence can't really use the timer. Does anyone here know what to do? I found this resource.
The image there recommends this set up:
Unlike this image, my vacuum breaker is before the timer. Is that an issue? If so, do I need to remove the old vaccum breaker and then install a new one after the orbit timer?
