Low flow after adjusting

I have one zone that barely trickles water out. I adjust them with sprinklers on and get them where I want. But after the sprinklers shut off, the next time they come on water barely trickles out again.

Any suggestions? Thanks!! ?(

You're turning them down too low. Nozzles are designed to be turned down a max of 20%.
So if you have 15 foot nozzles and you're trying to spray them 8 feet, it's not going to work.
They'll do exactly as you described.
Brass nozzles can be adjusted down low and stay put but plastic doesn't work well.
You need to buy new nozzles. They come in various distances. 17, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4. Depends on the brand.

That’s probably it, thanks! I’ve just been using random sprinklers from my drawer of parts.
