Febco 765 spewing water

I have a problem with a new Febco 765. It is new and professionally installed. I open the inlet value to the Febco and it appears to open properly. Then I open the faucet which is attached about 2" to the left of the Febco outlet. Water starts spewing out the top of the Febco.

I put the sprinkler system in myself but haven't tried to test it yet until I resolve this problem.

I read that the sprinkler valves must be at least 12" below the Febco (which they are) but I am thinking that at least one problem I have is the faucet too close to the Febco? Any comments would be appreciated.

Thank you,
