Front yard won't stop leaking

My front yard sprinklers have been leaking for three weeks and I cannot get them to stop. I have just tried changing the Celeron, however that did nothing to remedy the situation. Please help.

What is the celeron, and are the sprinklers leaking themselves or is it the pipe that is leaking. If it is either, you probably have a valve that has debris in it so it can't close. I would unscrew the top of the valve that leads to that zone and make sure there is nothing inside(sand, dirt, ect.)

Let us know what happens.

Celeron is probably solenoid...not usually the cause for a stuck valve.

Need to gut the valve or replace it...we need more info to give more info.
