Are you saying the faucets worked before he replaced the valve?
I have a few thoughts on this.
One thought is there was a miscommunication at the time of the install.
Is it possible he thought you wanted the faucets to be connected to a certain zone or two and only under pressure when that zone comes on? And you assumed they'd be under pressure all the time?
Another scenario. Maybe the pipes are hooked up incorrectly. Maybe the pressure line to the faucets is after the master valve instead of before? This way they'd only have pressure when the sprinkers are running.
Do the faucets have pressure when any zone runs in the back yard or just the one zone?
Supposing the faucets only have pressure when any valve runs. Do you have an empty zone on the timer? You could run that zone turning on the master valve which would supply pressure to the faucets. I know that's a pain in the butt but it would work until you find a permanent solution.

Water spigot

  • I
    I had a irr system put in 30 ft around the house in the back I had two spigot add too the line so i could water the grass where the sprinkle system did not. Than I had a leak around solenoid valve I called the-people who installed it he replaced the valve fixed the leak. Now the spigot don't, all the faucets around the house, in the house, and the sprinkler system work fine the bibs don't. They work when the sprinkler is running. I called him back he said I just replaced the valve. So I think that must be the problem I called a few time will not return my call how can I fix my spigot help me please.
