water pressure in line

when one zone goes off water pressure remains in the line and water seeps out of the sprinkler head.

How long does it seep out?

If it's constantly 24/7 seeping that you have a stuck valve and that valve would need to be replaced

If it's only for a short amount of time - Sprinkler systems are a gravity based system, so water will leak out generally out of the last head on the zone until it reaches atmospheric pressure.

You can install a SAM Sprinkler head to help prevent the sprinkler head from leaking after the zone shuts off

This is a Pop up spray SAM
This is a Rotor SAM
