    Hi,
    Just recently when one station of my sprinkler system is on, I hear a vibration in the house. Is this something I should be concerned about? What can I do to fix it?

    Find out why that one zone is different. Higher flow? Completely empty zone pipe?

    What kind of vibration?

    If it is a tick tick tick tick tick, take a look at your water meter. See if the ticking corresponds to the tell tale wheel on the meter.

    If it is a whining noise, you could have a bad PRV (pressure reducing valve) or bad rubbers in a frost free shutoff.

    If it is a hammering noise like a machine gun, it could be the backflow preventor or the valves themselves.
