Hooking a hose bib to an existing dripline on my system

Quoted from "mrfixit" Go to https://imgbb.com/, upload the pic, then copy the "BBCode Full Linked" address to your post. Make sure you do NOT checkmark auto delete. Find the brass back flow to the house to see if it's vibrating at all. Would be great if you could post a video somewhere. Here's the image: and where it feels like the vibration/noise is coming from. When I re-energize the system next year, I'll do the video thing you're mentioning... And thanks again for your time and feedback. I ...

Hooking a hose bib to an existing dripline on my system

Quoted ... As far as the valve goes, it's probably ok. I was thinking that the valve was humming. Thought you meant it was an Anti-syphon valve. Thanks again for all the tips. I've already blown out the system for the winter, but the thing that's vibrating (I think) is in the middle of the brass thing on my wall with the ball-valves and poppit valve in it. I think the vibration is coming from just underneath the poppit valve. If I take the cap off, I can see that the water pressure is holding t...

Then you're stuck having to turn it on and off by hand. If the vibration continues, swap out the valve to a low flow valve. Thanks mrfixit! I don't believe there's a pressure reducer anywhere on that drip-line, so I'll head out to Ace or Home Depo and try to find the one you mention? Does it matter "...

Hooking a hose bib to an existing dripline on my system

I have a dripline zone on my system that's causing my backflow valve to vibrate. I've read multiple places that it's likely due to a flow issue (not enough water moving to keep something in the backflow open. So, what I thought I could do is just hook up an outdoor spigot to the end of the line and run the dripline manually. Will that introduction of "back pressure" from the other end of the dripline hurt the manifold? And... Do you know of a way I could get the backflow valve to stop vibrating ...
