Sprinkler Heads spitting air.

You’ll need to know the layout of your pipe and contour of the yard. Water without pressure will always drain to the lowest point. Each sprinkler head could be a low point. To eliminate the drainage you would need to replace each sprinkler head with ones that have a check valve. I wouldn’t worry about it, unless the drainage is causing a problem or the noise irritates you. If you want to keep water in the pipe you'll need a check valve at every sprinkler head that drains.

Sprinklers Will Not Turn Off

You give programs start times; you give stations (zones) run times. A program is made up of stations and will start at the start time. Each station will run one at a time in sequential order for the length of their run time. Example: Say you want Stations 1, 2, 3 to come on at 8:00. You add stations 1, 2 and 3 to program A and say you give each station a run time of 10 minutes. Give program A one start time of 8:00. Each station will water for 10 minutes. Station 1 will start at 8:00; station 2 ...

Sprinkler Heads spitting air.

Sounds like the water in the pipe is draining out by gravity at the lowest sprinkler head. If it’s a problem or an irritation you can install check valves or sprinkler heads with check valves to stop the water from draining.

Sprinklers Will Not Turn Off

Sounds like you have multiple start times. You do not need a start time for each station. You only need one start time to activate all stations sequentially in a program (A, B, C). If you have multiple start times they will stack and begin the program again after it has finished.

Fouled up the wiring

Each valve is connected by only two wires, the common wire and one of the colored wires. The white common wire connects to all valves and one unique color wire goes to each different valve.

Fouled up the wiring

How many valves do you have? If you have a six station controller and six values then the black wire may be used for one of the valves. The white one most likely is the common, and the five color wire plus the black wire are for the six valves. All the valves need to be connected to the common wire (white?). Verify that the white wire is connected to the common post on the controller and match one of the color wires connected to the controller to the desired valve.

Valve leaking when sprinklers turn on

Quoted from "Music Junkie" Do you know why my pic did not show up? Was the pic host banned or something? You really didn’t do anything wrong. This website’s macro for inserting images expects the URL of the image (“http://i55.tinypic.com/2laab79.jpg”). You provided the IMG code for your image(“[img]http://i55.tinypic.com/2laab79.jpg" class="resizeImage" alt="" />[/img]“). The site's macro imbedded the two HTML codes together (“<img src="[img]http://i55.tinypic.com/2laab79.jpg" class="resizeImag...

toro adjustment

Sounds like a MultiStream head. You can try and play around with the radius adjustment and see if that lessens the amount of water that is sprayed close to the head. I don't know of a way to kill one of the streams on a MultiStream head. Click on the rotor link. https://homeownersolutions.toro.com/port…r_systems/30032

Issues with Sprinkler System

The solenoid may be bad. Attach the solenoid to a working valve. If the valve continues to work it is not the solenoid. Something may be wrong at the timer. At the timer try switching the wiring for that valve to one that is working. If it works then you have a bad station on your timer. Loose Wire connection - Check the field wiring. Also check the wiring at the timer and at the valve.

replacing heads

If you want to replace the sprinklers internal assembly you will need to dig and remove the dirt around the top of the sprinkler head so that you can unscrew the internal assembly and remove it from the sprinkler body. Changing the sprinkler nozzle is much simpler. These links should help.
