I am willing to install a master valve before the zone valves if this will cure the leak pass problem.

The contoller is a rainbird model number ISA408. I just downloaded the manual and a master valve can be wired.

Is this the fix I am looking for :rolleyes: .

I read a previous thread where the Hunter valve is recommended.

A master valve might be the cure for valves with a slow leakage issue, although well water with particles could make a leaker of any valve. A 'scrubber' valve is the best bet for dirty water. Rainbird makes the PESB valve for that demanding application.

Thanks for the advice wet_boots. I have one more question.

Are there any other alternatives to the rainbird valve. That PESB valve is expensive !!

How about the weathermatic 21000 or the rainbird PEB ?

I am a cheapskate, nuff said.

Since most pros will filter their well water supplies, they don't need any special valves. In your case, a good strainer could cost more than a PESB valve.
