Toro valve leak

I dont remember the Toro model number valve but it was a 1" residential with flow control. It had 8 or so screws, two of which we're under the solenoid mount. At one residence I replaced 2. They tended to hairline crack when under pressure and weep. I was really frustrated for a bit but, it was a crack that would develop along the casting seam just below the seat.

I have installed a few. Reliable, just be careful. Toggling thru the setup menue was a bit confusing.

wont turn off

carefully pull out the plunger and make sure there is not sand or some obstruction inside. I had this happen once( or 200 times i dunno) . I have rebuilt many a richdale/ Hardie etc with today's valves. Even some Homodepot can be rebuilt. Just replace the diaphragm/ seat, remove the solenoid plunger retainer, clean put grit inside solenoid so plunger can retract when actuated and try that.
