    When I get older and start having bladder problems, I won't get my prostate checked I will just jam a SAM up my Johnson.

    Do they make 12" SAM's?

    Curious, why would you think that? If the valve is weeping the SAMS will just mask the problem for a little while.

    One might think that if the valve was weeping, the water would have found its way to the non-SAMs, unless there were only four heads on the zone. :dizzy:

    Look fellas.. The bottom head drained for a little over 5 minutes after the system was off. This is with the bottom end head off. If it were a valve stuck there would be a constant trickle of some sort. The problem is solved. No need for all the smart ass comments because I'm sure all of you were geniuses at birth.

    Not if you shut the water off at the meter.... A few posts back you said you shut the meter off and the head stoped leaking, so it was not the valve.... in all honesty that was funny. Now it helps to have a thick skin and a sense of humor in the irrigation forum....

    Kiril was the only born genius here, but even he went on to learn more on his own.
