I cleaned it and then I got maybe a foot spray pattern and the same trickle from the second head and still nothing from the rest. So somewhere the line is either blocked or leaking because there isnt enough pressure to even make the heads pop up all the way. I added a pic of what the sprinklers look like.
You are the perfect example of what i have been saying for years.

Measuring and verifying flow is too easy to do so most people will troubleshoot with a shovel.

If you don't have a meter, pull the bonnet and turn the water on.

DON'T assume leak.
DO test and verify.
