sprinkler systen spitting water when using irritron.

I recently tried to use my automatic sprinkler system an irritron, When I first wired them up, they wouldn't turn on so I went and bought new solenoids. when i got them to turn on by zone, the sprinklers would spit out water and there sounds like hammering in pipes. When I turn on the valves manually they work fine. No spitting no hammering. I also noticed that when I put a 9 volt battery the screen got brighter. Its not the solenoids, is it my irritron? some one suggested that its probably not putting out the required 24 volts. please help. ?(

Try connecting three 9 volt batteries in series to test your valves. If you have a master valve you'll need to turn it on manually.
