Irrigation system low pressure on auto valves

jlomba3201April 17, 2008

I just fired up my sprinkler system and I noticed the pressure seemed a little low so after fooling with the valves I noticed that when opened the valve manualy they worked ok but when the solinoid opened the valve the pressure is lower.

I am not sure what to do any sugestions I sure could use the help.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hmm, sounds strange. Are all of your valves doing this?
Sounds like the solenoid is only partially opening. Assuming your power supply is adequate, I'd suggest replacing the solenoid.
