How does a lawn genie valve work?
The Lawn Genie L7034 Anti-Siphon Valve is equipped with a flow-control screw so you can easily adjust the rate the sprinklers emit water. The flow-control screw adjusts the amount of water pressure that goes to the sprinkler zone serviced by the valve. via

How do I turn off my lawn genie?
Some valves will have a flow control feature, (i.e.- a shutoff on the valve, which might look like a knob, tee handle, or sometimes like a screw head on the top of the valve). If your valve does have this flow control feature, try shutting it off by turning the flow control handle. via
Should sprinkler valves be open or closed?
Make sure the sprinkler valve is closed, unless it's the valve farthest from the main water source. You'll want to leave this valve open and remove the sprinkler nozzle to allow air to escape when you turn on the water. via

What causes a sprinkler valve to not shut off?
Debris in Valve
One of the most common reasons that a sprinkler zone won't shut off has to do with debris stuck in the valve. More specifically, if debris has entered the valve, it can cause the diaphragm to remain open. To correct this issue, you'll want to clean out the valve. via
Is it normal for sprinkler valves to leak?
The most common reason leaks occur is that the rubber parts in the valve box have worn out. Water seeps freely through the system when the diaphragm seal breaks or debris is obstructing the valve from closing. A broken or aging sprinkler valve diaphragm seal only gets worse over time. via
What happens when sprinkler valve goes bad?
Too much water, and you can have waterlogged sections of the lawn. Not only does this make walking on these sections of lawn uncomfortable, but it can also lead to a deterioration in the health of that patch. Too little water due to a bad sprinkler valve can lead to dry and unsightly brown patches on your lawn. via

What happens if a sprinkler solenoid goes bad?
A sprinkler works because the solenoid changes the water pressure inside the sprinkler chamber and lifts the plunger that opens the sprinkler valve. If your solenoid is bad, the water pressure in the sprinkler chamber will not be changed and the valve will fail to open. via
