Water Spigot on or off???

My sprinkler system is hooked into an outdoor water spigot with a Y connector. The system will only work if the faucet is on.

My question is if I water at 5 am with my automatic timer, should I turn on the faucet before I go to bed?? Does turning on the faucet for automatic sprinkler timing continutally keep the water on?? Or is the water only running when the timer turns the sprinklers on??

HELP...I don't want my plants to die, but I don't want a $100 water bill!! Thanks.

I believe you're supposed to leave the faucet on permanently. The timer will turn on and off the water.
