one of my sprinklers is always flooded, its the lowest one in the system. So
I assume there's water leaking from the valve, into the system and its
collecting there, but I'm not sure what I would need to look for at the
thank in advance for any help
By "flooded," do you simply mean that water pools up around that sprinkler
head after it shuts off, and possibly while other sprinklers on the system
are still operating? If so, I had a similar problem. In fact, a very small
stream of water would often continue from that sprinkler head even after the
system had moved on to another station (I have 10 stations on my system). I
called the sprinkler service and learned that it is actually normal for the
lowest head to act in that way. It was simply draining as a result of
gravity. They were able to raise the head slightly for me and add more soil
in that area, and that elimianted the problem. However, he said that it
really is not a "problem" (as I perceived it) and should not be a concern.
I hope your issue is as simple as mine was and hope this information helps.
