I have a 6 zone system. The valves are spread across the yard, not centralized. When I start the system, zone 1 turns on like normal, however it won't move on to zone 2. So, I turn the water off from the Shut Off valve a the street.
I go back inside and turn the system off at the control box. I go back to the street and turn the water back on. Now water is trickling out of the sprinkler heads in zone 1 with the sprinkler system turned off.
