Uh, perhaps the exhaust? Seriously man, take a picture or something.

EDIT: Also, please use some semblance of proper grammar and spelling. It's a solenoid, not a silnoide

Doesn't a sprinkler valve exhaust through the barrel portion when the solenoid is used? According to the SGTC, it does.

That's the hole that the volume above the diaphragm exhausts through when the solenoid is triggered.

It should have been plugged with epoxy along with the rest of the area that the solenoid fit into.

If it is coming out the exhaust side where you screw in the barrel looking in there you can see a hole that it's coming out of it attaches to the guide rod which is hollow right FILL IT WITH EPOXY

PVC Arsenal's pic should show you were the air is coming from. Either re-attach your solenoid or plug the main solenoid hole with epoxy. Your problem should be fixed.
