Default Help! Irrig system malfunction maybe due to lightning strike

The irrigation system was spewing water nonstop.
I think something got hit with today’s storm.
My neighbor came and he shut off the power breaker to the irrigation system and water, thank goodness, stopped.
My question:
Should I call a plumber, an electrician or an irrig system person?
If this has happened to you, how did you solve the issue?
Thanks in advance .

Most likely one or more valves have malfunctioned and need to be replaced. Need an irrigation system company to come out and fix it.

When you say spewing water non stop, what do you mean? All zones at once? One sprinkler spouting a geyser? If you know how, I would shut it down, reprogram the start times and restart. May not be the big problem you think.

What is interesting about this is your neighbor caught this. I could have been it would not have been caught until you received the bill.

If all this is true then you could benefit from a water monitor which would text you that you had a leak.

Another recommendation for Joe Tucker. Fair pricing and thorough. However, I'm not sure if you need an electrician, a plumber or an irrigation person.

I have used both Joe Tucker and Jim Baumgardner, and would recommend either one, great service and prices.

No need for an electrician--the box plugs in--everything else is low voltage
