I think most of these guys are all using the same brand of test equipment.

Sorry for not replying gents, for some reason, I never received the notifications that there had been replies to my thread. I do realize that I was asking for some speculation and I'm fully aware that it could be A, B, C, or D, etc. and I'm thinking that what may be the case is that the common may not be fully connected at the beginning of the nonworking zones. If that's the case, that's my dumbass fault, but I should know more after today. I've not taken any measurements as yet and yes, I like cheese too, but Velveeta is not cheese.

irrigation issues

As it turns out, the common was, in fact, the issue, but it was on another valve. Looks like someone's still messing around :/

Why would you think that someone would be messing with the system?

I beg to differ Rhett. No where, on any scale, is there anyone quite like you.
