Leaky Pressure Vacuum Breaker : HomeImprovement

Hi – I had some difficulty restarting my sprinklers after winterization: https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/comments/ncv942/correct_valve_position_for_pressure_vacuum_breaker/

The issue I have now is that after having shut the valves on the pressure vacuum breaker to off and turning on the water, a small amount of water dribbles out from the cap. Does this mean there’s a leak in the pressure vacuum breaker or did I do something bad by first having tried to turn on the water while the valves on the breaker were in the 45 deg position?

Here’s a video of the water leak: https://imgur.com/gallery/bH7DpMB

FYI, it looks like in the video that the bottom valve is not completely closed but it doesn’t turn any further than this.
