Hey Ben,
Your best bet is to hire and irrigaton company who has a "valvee finder" tool to find your valves. The tool is very costly to buy yourself. To check for valves, ffollow the wire, look around where the water is connected t you main source, if the backflow is inside follow the pipes leading dfrom it outside, or poke around with a pole on your lawn, because sometimes its buryed. Your best bet is to callan irrigation company



Thanks

leaky valve

I have a 3 zone sprinkler system but zone 3 has it's heads leaking all he time. I know I've got to find the manifold and change the valve. The problem is I can't find it. There is definitely no visible box . I followed the water pipes and control wires as best as I could, dug up parts of the lawn, even dug up some of my driveway (to my wife's chagrin) but I can't find the valves. Does anyone know any tricks or hints that I can use to find them? Do I have to get a metal detector and go through my whole property?
Please help.
Ben
