Customer Question

We have a Pro-C irrigation system. We have 12 zones. All are working fine except zone 2. Water come out of all heads but there doesn't seem to be enough pressure to make the head pop up and shoot the water out.

You could have a leak in the line feeding the heads or the solenoid may not be opening completely (or it's clogged).

Where would I look for that? All zones are operating properly except that one
Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

The first thing to try is to take the solenoid apart, flush it out and rebuild the valve. If that doesn't work then finding a leak in a buried irrigation line is probably best left to a leak detection company. There's no way a homeowners is going to find it unless you dig up the entire line or the leak is so bad you see water ponding on the lawn.
