finally fixed it

it seems it was more than one thing. replacing diaphragms fixed one zone. it seems the other zone was either not having the manual valve all the way shut because tree roots were in the way or the roots were applying enough pressure to allow the water past the o ring. after taking apart all 3 valves that were in this box, i have a leak free box again, no tree roots and zones that stay closed.

solenoids were replaced, but i had this issue with the control box totally disconnected ,as soon as i turned on the water valve; so as someone earlier told me, the problem was in the valve, which it was. thanks for the help.
