leak from valve at main


Firing up the sprinkler system for the first time this year. Went through the sequence of turning on the system (outside and basement)

When I turned on the water from the basement (main) tremendous leak and water backflow through the valve (screw type cap).

We did not winterize...........

What to do now?

Get out your checkbook. Anything and everything could be broken.
