For several years, it is not a new problem, just gets worse.

We have 7 stations
sprinkler heads vary in spray pattern, some full, some 1/2 or 1/4 10 to a station
they umbrrealla heads. we are on city water, has it own meter
we have one timer, we normally water 6:00 A.M. we live where we have lots of wind, later in the day so we try to avoid that

that is a lot of heads to a zone these days ........it seems that municipal water pressure has decreased in the past couple of years for some reason.............heads and their patterns could be changed or cut back to add another zone for better coverage on the lawn.......you would have to map that out for me and we can see where we could improve
