Sounds like the anti-siphon cap, unscrew and check the gasket. If it is the other side tighten the screws if sill leaks valve body could be cracked and needs to be replaced.

How to find the valve that controls zone 6


If the valve is leaking, it's the one that water is coming out of. The question is unclear.

Sprinkler will not change zones


You mean timer will not change zones? Is it from zone 1 to zone 2? Does the timer say it is watering zone 2 and no water, does it default and shut down on zone 2? Does zone 2 have run time? Can you be a little more specific?

I have one zone in my sprinkler system that has low pressure. I have changed the control valve and its the same. No signs of broken lines.


If it is a anti-siphon valve remove the anti-siphon cap and let it rip. Remove cap on adjacent valve and let it rip check to be sure the gieser is identical. If so let it run for a long time the leak will eventually show up. Because if it worked before and doesn't work now it has a leak. Water takes the path of least resistance. I have had them access the landscape drain before and you the leak didn't appear until it emptied at the street or followed a gopher hole a few hundred feet before surfacing. Listen carefully you will probably hear it.

If water just dribbles over the anti-siphon portion with cap removed it is still not opening flow control know may be turned down. In fact I would check to ensure this isn't the entire problem turn ir counter clockwise until it stops. This is the round know in the center of the valve.

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

I have low water pressure on my rainbird sprinkler system. how can i adjust it?


There are several ways to adjust water pressure on sprinkler systems. First you have to determine if there is a problem with the sprinkler system itself. Things to look for:
1.) make sure that all valves including the main are all the way open.
2.) Inspect the sprinkler heads for clogging. Sediment and debris can also clog your sprinkler heads. Some debris removal may be required.
3.) You make have too many sprinklers operating by one valve. You may need to divide a zone and add another valve to increase water pressure.
4.) If all else fails. You can install a breather intake cap to allow air into your sprinkler system thus increasing GPM (gallon per minute)flow.
5.) one of the biggest mistakes that peopel make is that they undersize the water pipe size to save money. Typically you want to use 3/4" PVC pipe for your main runs and tee into 1/2" PVC for your sprinkler heads.
Good luck. I hope this helps.

I have 1 and 1/2 horsepower sprinkler pump that wont prime. As soon as the end piece fills, it will empty if I open the end to the sprinkler.


I don't know what is your system set up. However, the system set up should be the following;
1. Your 1-1/2HP sprinkler pump must be installed at
a fix location nearest the water source. (Complete
with power and plumbing lines.)
2. At the end of the suction line is a vertical check
valve with strainer.
3. The suction pipeline must be connected to the
suction port of the pump.
4. At the discharge port, a flow control valve tee must
be installed. The flow control valve tee top is
covered with a plug, which serves as the priming
port when opened.
5. After the flow control valve, connect a short nipple
so that you can put a gate valve to stop the water
flow or allow the water to flow. You may connect
a pressure tank at this point or you may connect
the pressure hose going to the sprinkler.
6. To prime the pump, open the plug at the flow
control top. Fill it full with water, replace the
priming port plug.
7. Turn the flow control valve to full closed position.
8. From full close position, switch the power on.
9. The pump now run on and off due the pressure
switch setting. Slowly open the flow control valve
such that the water pressure remains steady.
10. Take note of the pressure.
11. Shut the power off, and connect the sprinkler
pump hose.
12. Put the power back on, and allow the pump to
run with the sprinkler.

Under this set up, you can run the sprinklers when your pump is running. Hope this will solve problem.

Sprinkler head does not spray water


Make sure when you pull the head to ck the screen you turn the system on and blow out the line, then run a hose through the head to make sure it isn't plugged up anyway. Depending on the head and the cost of a new one will dictate cleaning or replacement.

Brass Champion Sprinkler Valve


The lowest sprinkler head usually leaks until all the water is out of the system. The valve that controls the sprinkler system has a vaccum breaker valve on it. When there is no pressure from the water main the vaccum valve opens allowing the sprinklers to leak water so the house water won't get contaminated from the grass and dirt in your yard.
