Sprinkler Heads Bleed Constantly Due to Sediment Getting into Diaphragm

I have had my system only a few years and the past year I was hardly able to use it. The kicker here is that I use my well water to supply the water as that is all I have available. I have installed the finest filter which is before the water hits the diaphragm and still I get bleeding due to sediment on the diaphragm. Is there any other way to avoid this? The only thing I could think of would be a shutoff that would need to be in sync with the sprinkler timer that would literally shut off the water to the system when the sprinklers are not going. However I have not been able to find such a device that is connected to a timer of some sort. Without this fix, my sprinkler system is basically worhtless as I cannot afford to have the sprinkler heads bleed.
