Berkeley B82456 no Pressure, Sprinklers do not turn on. HELP!!

Hey all, I currently have a Berkeley B82456 motor being controlled by a Toro TMC-212. For some reason or another my sprinklers are not coming on. I don't believe it's an issue with the controller, as it appears to be functioning normally. When I instruct a "Manual ON" the motor does turn on, and all the normal symbols appear, etc. But none of the sprinklers come on and when I check the motor, the valve shows that there's no pressure. Water is being pumped from a creek in my backyard and I've checked and the hose is not clogged or anything so I'm baffled.

Any advice?? Has anyone had this problem before??

Pumps can always have suction-side issues. Prime the pump, and see how long it will function.
