Thumbs down Reduced pressure in sprinkler zone

Hi all,
I have a 3-zone lawn sprinkler system. Just last week, one of the 3 zones has apparent reduced pressure as observed by the decreased streams of ALL the heads on that zone. The remaining zones are fine.

What do you think might be causing this?

Regards & thanks, Majac777

two best options that come to mind.

1. you have a leak. walk carefully all over the area when this zone is running. leaks can be hard to spot.

2. your valve is not opening 100%. Happens to some older valves.

3. something is constricting or blocking the lines-- tree roots, rocks, etc.
