esp rainbird controller linked to maxicom

In the old mailbox, I read the following ~~

Hopefully you can help me. I have a 40 station esp rainbird controller linked to maxicom at the well water source. I noticed one weeping valve and 5 other stations buzzing at the selenoid with the pump at the well runnjing with small amount of water peeing out of the heads. I checked with volt meter at the controller and found thoes stations that were buzzing or power to the selenois with 26 volts. I shut the pump down at the well and the water stoped but the selenoids were still buzzing, so I shut the controllers power off and switch from maxicom to stand alone at the conroller and the selenoids stoped buzzing all 6 selenoids or stations and checked the volts and gor zero reading wich i think that normal, then i tested again with the volt meter and turned on a station and got 26 volts at the station wich I thought that was normal. If some one knows what happen here need some help[ to figure out.
