Zone 3 heads do not pop fully up.

The sprinkler heads in zone 3 do not pop fully up like my other 2 zones. "Assuming" since they are coming from the same water feed the pressure is strong enough and ensuring none of the heads are leaking etc etc kind of puzzled. I also checked the on / off manual setting on the control valve to make sure it was fully on , which it is.

Thanks again for the help.

Look for leaks - if none are evident, you need a pressure gauge to diagnose further.

I ended up digging the first two heads and piping to check for leaks "thinking" it seemed damper then the rest of the yard. I figured that where the leak was....none was found. I disconnected the heads, cleaned them, put the heads back on and the pressure is much better. The heads raise about 3/4 of the way. So to be honest not 100% sure what the cause was but something did help.

TYVM for the response.

Turn the valve on with the bleeder screw. Did that help?
