knocing noise

When turning on sprinkler from timer box you hear water go on then a bang in the pipe. It then goes on each zone ok and shuts off ok just starting up. Also if the water pressure is to high entering a system can it also cause a banging noise in the pipe .

taken from anoter thread;

Also, note that there is banging when the zone is first opened, and that is not water hammer. It is something of an oscillation you can sometimes see when a system is first opened in the spring, where there is no water in the zone for the supply to 'push' against. When it happens on a recurring basis, you look to make changes. Installing check valves in the heads is one obvious choice nowadays, to keep a zone full of water, so there's something to 'push' against. Throttling down a zone valve flow control is another option. Changing zone valves is another.
