    We purchased a new home over the winter, and when I went to turn on the irrigation system, water just pours out of the PVB valve. Can someone give me some pointers as to what I may need to check?

    The problem may be as simple as getting the PVB to pressurize. Shut off the second ball valve on the PVB and turn the water on and see if it pressurizes. If not it could be a cracked poppet or bonnet, which are easy to replace. Generally nothing too serious.
