Locate a broken irrigation line

I recently removed several trees from my backyard and ground 2 stumps. When I turned on a manual test of the zone all 6 rainbird heads popped and a light spray came from all heads. When I checked the pressure at the pump it was outputting 20-25psi. Normally, the output is between 40-50psi for this zone. I know I have a leak somewhere but locating it is a problem. Running the zone then looking for a puddle area leaves me with a wet backyard and no telltale puddle/bubble area. I ran the zone for about 10 minutes. Should I cap off all the rainbird heads and run the zone? Any recommendations?

capping off heads = good idea
