Sprinkler station won't turn off...

I have one station that won't turn off with the timer. The only way to get it to stop is to secure the manual block valve for a time. Then when I reopen the block valve the water stays stopped. When the timer cycles again the solenoid opens but won't reclose until I close the block valve. I have replaced the solenoid a few times but so far nothing has worked.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Take care,

check your timer settings, if you have duplicated a station on/off cycle it will continue to run.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a a small pebble that got caught just under the rubber gasket inside the valve. I fixed it by simply removing and cleaning off the gasket and it's seat.

Good luck
