Pump start relay clicking but no water

Hmm, Lets start off with the simple things: Are all your wires connected proprly to the controller/valves? If it's more then one valve like you are talking about, you more then likely have a spilt wire or your common (ground) wire isn't correct. Let me know what you find out!!!

Sprinlers leak when valves are off

Are the solenoids and bleeds tight? It is probably because of the sligh slope. Water flows from high areas to low areas. I would replace those two heads with heads with check valves in them, such as the Rainbird 5000 plus.

help me select heads

If the rectangular parts is 32 feet wide, I think I'd use rotors. I prefer Rainbird heads. That is all I install.

Educate me then. Why is it that most baseball fields/commercial designs with long runs, they reduce the pipe size as the run goes on? Conserve flow for the last head?

Leaky Swing Joints

If it's a slow leak, I wouldn't worry about it as the ground will absorb most of it rather quickly. I have never used swing joints except for funny pipe. Someone else here could be able to help you.

Attaching pvc to pex

If the house shut off is after the meter, I wouldn't tap in there. You won't be able to shut the house water off while your tapping into the line, much less you'll have a wet mess, that you won't be able to shut off. As far as connections go, a compression tee works for PEX.

Volume. The spigot is probably only running on 1/2" pipe. The smaller the pipe, the more pressure, but less volume.

Valve Manifold Location

Why not spend the money and get a durable plastic box. Eventually, the wood will rot, causing the hole to cave in, you may never be able to find your valves again. Secondly if they are anti-siphon valves that is ok to put them above the ground, inline valves are typically for an underground situation. Bury them and put them in a plastic box.
