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.

Why is replacement sprinkler head leaking?

If water pressure is over minimum recommended rate, your replacement sprinkler head shouldn't leak; it it's leaking probably because it is of a very bad quality. If it's new, return it to the shop where you bought it and clim your warranty right

The sprinkler system is shut off but there is still little water coming out of the sprinkler head. What is the cause of this problem?

Water will continue to run back down the hills to the lowest Heads and Some water will come out.It will stop once the water in the lines has Drained out.

What causes a sprinkler to leak after shot-off ?

It could be the shutoff valve (debris in stem tip), but most likely cause is that the sprinkler is the lowest point in that line and, after shutoff, the water in the system is draining to the lowest point.

Most likely cause is small bit of contaminant (TFE tape, etc.) is caught in the seat area, or possibly (if electrically actuated) the solenoid is not working properly.

No i don't just trying to help a elderly lady

It's not the sprinkler. The valve is not seating completely. You will notice the sprinkler it is leaking from is the lowest one in that particular zone. Don't take it out on the sprinkler it's not his fault. Think of it as if you didn't shut a hose bib off completely the leak doesn't drip at the bib it shows up at the end of the garden hose. Same principal. The valve is the hose bib.

Our raintrain has worked for years....but now it is leaking out of the bottom causing it to get stuck often......please help us!!!!

I think your valve is shot. There is a button underneath that is pushed up by the ramp. It then closes the valve. The valve is leaking and lowering your water pressure causing your sprinkler to get stuck.

You could replace the valve but that requires disassembly of the gear box. The gears inside may be worn too so, I am suggesting that you just replace the gear box. Replacing the gear box will give you all new moving (and sealing) parts. This web site has a box for about 1/2 to 1/4 the price of a new sprinkler.

The timer no longer plays all 3 programmed zones. It play only one.

Three things to look for:
1) If sprinkler turns on-off but doesn't advance to next zone, then Sprinkler Valve is suspect, and timer is good.
2) If sprinkler stays on all the time, or never turns on, then Timer is suspect.
3) If sprinkler turns on-off, but leaks when it's supposed to be off, then Sprinkler Valve is suspect, and timer is good.
