Nelson Valves

?( I turned my water pump and control box on yesterday. 3 of the 4 valves are leaking whether the timer is on or not. The only one that is not leaking will not come on at all. Any suggestions from anyone?

Find the valves in the field and then open them up manually by the solenoid and then close the solenoid try to see if the solenoid was loose. Tighten it! Then if there is a manual bleed screw open it. Then close it fairly tight.

Good Luck

VALVES

Thanks, Hi.Todd. The valve that would not come on is bad. Checked it with a meter. Current coming to the valve when the valve should be activated but valve not working.



I checked the valves that were leaking. Apparently, there is some trash in them. I can activate the zone with the solenoid by turning it and cut it off by tightening it but all 3 are still leaking.

I took the 3 valves apart, cleaned them blew them out with an air hose, put them back together. STILL LEAKING!



Any ideas as to what to do next?
