Went to turn on my sprinkler system for the second time this year and nothing comes up. Confirmed water is flowing from pump (not sure if rate has changed though). No sprinklers come up, but every sprinkler I check has water weeping out of it (enough to cover the head, as the heads are a little low).
I've confirmed the controller is sending proper voltage to the valve, the solenoid actuates, but seems water is coming out of each zone. When I go to each valve, I open the bleed valve (hunter pgv) and water slowly comes out. Walked near the main to confirm there isn't a main leak, haven't found anything yet. Pulled a valve and didn't see anything (debris).
If I pressurize the main only, without opening any valves, water still flows from all sprinklers.
I don't want to run all zones at once. Just want to run one zone (5 sprinklers) at a time. However, whether I try one zone, or just pressurize the main line and no sprinklers, all sprinklers leak. Yes, I don't think supply can run all zones at once (and it's not meant to). I don't know why when I turn on 1 zone, all sprinklers leak.
