Doesn't seem to matter too much if the valve is turned on manually, or by the clock, although the problem may happen slightly more often when turned on by the clock. It's a Hunter PGV valve, and isn't that old. I took the valve apart and inspected everything, which all appeared to be in good shape. There's no leaks anywhere to be found either.

Anybody have any ideas or suggestions?
Do a 3 minute meter check of the zone, taking pics of the meter reading before and after running the zone.

Divide the useage by 3 to arrive at yovr gpm.

Add your nozzles for demand and you will know whether you have a leak or a restriction.
