1" PBV popping and pouring out water randomly between zone changes

I bought a house with an irrigation system and it was a watts 1" pbv installed and randomly and sometimes ( not always) when it changes zones, the Pbv pops and pours water until i shut the system off and turn the main ball valve in the basement off.

upon restarting it will start ok and then randomly it will happen again.

I cant run the system when im not home for fear itll flood and pour out at full speed for hours..

i had the irrigation guy test the pressure and he said it was OK.. but he said i may have low flow..

any advice???
