Is this a back flow issue?

I just dug up some sprinklers and moved them, but I kept them coming from the same valve and supply line. But what I have now noticed is that when the sprinklers are "off" they are leaking. Pretty significantly too.

Is this a back flow issue? Why is this happening? And how do I fix it?

thank you.

If the water never stops, then it's a zone valve issue

If you don't know where the valve is you can rent avalve locator.
If you've never rebuilt a valve go HERE for a basic walk through.

OK, thanks for that video. That seems easy enough. i know where the valve is. I dug all that up.

Cool I will give that a go.
