THIS QUESTION IS ABOUT A RAIN BIRD LAWN SPRINKLER. Two of

THIS QUESTION IS ABOUT A RAIN BIRD LAWN SPRINKLER.Two of the zone valves in my Rain Bird sprinkler system appear to be leaking. I don't know the particular valve number, but unlike many youtube videos it does not appear that the valve can be taken apart by removing some screws. Perhaps the valve itself screws in place? Photo attached. Even if it does screw in place, I can't turn it by hand and there wouldn't be room for a large wrench to do so. So how do I remove the valve. Or is there a completely different way to find and fix the leaks?

I got some leaks in my sprinkler system fixed. Then when I turned it on it worked for about 5 minutes then said "no AC". I was told the transformer didn't work and it became warm. Next I changed the transformer, checked the voltage after the transformer and it read 27 V. Again, the system worked for about 5 minutes and then stopped with the "no AC" message again. I checked the socket that it plugs into and the circuit breaker. The all work.Help!!!Rod Xuereb,Seattle

I laid sod down last spring/summer. It was perfect and the seams blended in very well. I took a look this past week and I can now see the seams. Is this normal to happen over the winter? It appears that the sod shrunk a bit and isnt' connected as well as it was in the summer. I have a sprinkler system and it was watered regularly. I am in northern nj if that matters.

I live in the San Francisco Bay area, more inland than the coastal area. My small back yard lawn had some badly compacted areas due to my mismanagement plus our drought conditions. There was an area of the lawn with ugly compacted soil with, of course, weeds, crab grass, etc., starting to take root.About 3 months ago I got so tired of looking at it I Googled some garden repair information, and accordingly laid down 3 sheets of newspaper over the area and put about 3 inches of a local garden supply store's organic soil mix conditioner. The soil mix looks a lot better than the ugly compacted soil, but now what? Can I spread some grass seed over the area now that we are getting rain? Will the seeds take hold and give me a nice green lawn?I am not looking to replace the lawn with something other than grass. My backyard lawn is small, (I feel like I have to apologize for having a lawn, living in California!) It is a good area, gets sun, good drainage, etc. As I said, the area went "bad" due to my mismanagement and our drought years.
