I recently moved in a house with a Water Master Model #57974 system. I have set all the zones and the sprinklers for the grass which are on one zone work perfectly. However, the drips for the plants will not shut off - water continually runs from them even when I shut off the system completely (at the box - turn to Off). I don't know anything about these systems so any info would be appreciated.

Find the zone valve for the plants and try to manually shut it off. It is probably in the ground near the plants in a green box. If it won't shut off, you'll have to take the valve apart and clean the diaphragm(s).
