Sprinkler anti siphon lid on my Champion brass irrigation valve leaks (heavily) when this irrigation Zone is turned ON & none of my sprinklers pop out and they don't work in this zone....

It was working perfectly until this. The only thing I have recently done (not sure if relevant): Could the fact that I opened a sprinkler head (while system was working) last week and water squirted out and I turned the system off to fix it created the issue.

Please advise - Thanks :)

The cap looks like it can be unthreaded. Look for name and part number of the unit that is on the cap. Then search for a rebuilt kit. If you can fine one, get two for the other one. If you want to chance it remove the cap and take out the diapham. It might have dislodge or debris is jammed in it but it just could just be it dried out.

It looks like an Orbit assembly. You'll need to search for a rebuilt kit for the size you have.

Thank you so much . So do you believe that the problem could be related to the top part (I think the name is actuator) or is it the backflow cap parts (floater washer) only that needs to be replaced? The leak is only coming from the anti-siphone lid.

I opened the leaking part and washer and floater look fine - the system is 3 years old only - not much wear and tear (that I can see) on this one. :-/
