Maybe that property simply has very low water pressure.

Well put those 3 on a different valve. Thats all you really can do.
If you put them on different zones, you could run them at different times and that might increase the pressure due to the fact they would have less drain on the pressure with other sprinklers in operation at once?

i did the exact same layout different brand valves and different brand sprinklers but better pressure not sure where i went wrong...

the first time i was using the JTV/AS and JTV/ASF Series
Anti-Siphon Jar Top Sprinkler Valves now i went with the cheaper ones, Orbit Automatic Anti-Siphon valves and i was using the rain bird sprinklers and i changed them to orbit sprinklers the drip valves stayed the same brand (rainBird) and well everything works great but i dont know what i did wrong the first time i checked for leaks or any pressure loss within the pipes and i could not find one o well

not a clue then man. That sucks. The only thing that comes to mind then. Did a rock maybe get stuck inside. Cleaning the sprinklers heads wouldnt change any of that.

Has this project changed the way you look at irrigation repair and bidding such jobs?
