Valves chatter, buzz or are noisy

Unfortunately, if your sprinkler timer valves chatter, buzz, or make noise and may have reduced water pressure, it’s a “classic” symptom that the sprinkler timer is failing.  It’ll continue to get worse over time until it stops working completely.  Fortunately, it’s something we repair frequently; just send it in.   Removal instructions are here.

Here is a video of common chattering, although it may buzz very fast, or be as slow as clicking once a second.

Some of the other symptoms that occur after the chattering problem gets worse and eventually the chattering stops.
