Low Flow - fixed by manually opening BFP release valves

I just replaced my BFP because I always had low flow. To fix my flow problems I would shut off the water leading to the sprinklers (after the BFP) and open all three values (no particular order) and then close them. I would open the water valve again and my flow is perfect through all 5 zones.

Replacing the BFP did not fix my problem. Any suggestions as to why opening those release valves fixes the problem and more importantly - any idea what the underlying problem is?
