It is always refreshing to come to Lawn Site for a good laugh.

Maybe you should stick with Weed Wacking?

You have not found a valve because you either did not take the time, do not have the skills or do not have the equipment.....or all of the above.

Can you let all of us in on your secret procedure to "push the water up hill" so I can pass it along to my service techs on April fools day?

This just goes to again how most people have no respect for Irrigation Professionals.

I feel bad for your customer.

We have only ourselves to blame.

Water draining out of bottom head of zone

It's always nice to see the smart asses on here. Which is one reason I don't ask any questions on here. Most of the time I'm working so the post or comments aren't worded exactly how I would like them to read. " Push water up the hill " means installing SAMs where you don't have as much low head drainage on a zone.

Low head drainage is a totally different animal than is a weeping valve. You described a weeping valve in your post.

When one terminates the supply and the head quits leaking, you reinstate the supply and the head begins to leak again. The valve is weeping.....Finding the valve and fixing it would be the best solution.

Or you can replace all of the heads with SAMs, which will work, unless the pressure exceeds the check and they still leak.

Replaced 4 heads with SAMs. No water sea page now and it wasn't the valve. Everything checked out

Yup, you checked the valve and its not the valve.
