Customer Question
Hello,Former sprinkler system I have...
Hello,Former sprinkler system I have a Rachio controller which is located in my garage. I recently had an issue with the electrical power in my garage and my Rachio controller was off for a number of days. Yesterday I was able to correct issue with the power and I was able to restore the power in the garage. However now I'm experiencing another issue. As soon as the power returned to the garage I noticed water seeping out off the sprinkler control box which is located in the dirt in the backyard. I disconnected the power to the Rachio controller to see if the water flow would stop at the control box but it didn't. I had to shut the water off for the entire home to stop the water flow in the control box. What could be the issue? Thank you

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

I need a better idea what's in the control box. Solenoid valves? backflow preventer(s)? something else? A picture might help

Hi Rick, I am currently not at property and won’t be there until tomorrow. However from my last visit at the location I remember seeing solenoid valves. But I won’t be able to confirm until tomorrow.
