    Location & turf variety needed.
    Closeup of turf with connected roots needed. From the fringe area.
    This is for starters.
    There's a good chance you have nematode activities.

    It is always proper to diagnoses before application. Something to note. After insecticides have been applied & perform their duties, aside from webworms. After said insect is dead, residual damage will continue to progress giving the impresion that that your application failed some. Once turf damaging insects are dead. Damage will often continue for several days. This does not mean the insecticide didn't work, it's just the damage is not over.
    If you have not visually identified your target insects as absent or present we can't continue. We have to know weather it's sudden turf decline, or over a period of time it declined? Hopefully someone in your area who post here will add some insight when possible.

    I'm not saying it's all of your problem (but it may be a contribution factor) it looks like your sprinkler system is poorly designed
