Leaking Valves

I have a 2 zone system with Hardie 1" valves. Both had begun to leak and I replaced the diaphram assemblies on both. Still leak.
The leak is at the drippers and sprinkler heads on the other zone.
Both of these have a continious slow flow coming out of them.
Any ideas???

There may be a tiny hole in the diaphram or it may be worn out. You also might have a rock in the valve holding it open. Unscrew the valve and flush it. If it still occurs replace it with an Irritrol 2400 valve (same as the old Hardies) found at sprinkler warehouse. You only have to unscrew and take out the old guts and replace with the new iRritrol.
