    I recently installed a new sprinkler system at my house. I installed 3 zones one for each side of the garden and one for the lawn. The sprinkler heads in the garden are the 4" pop up type. The system doesn's seem to have enough pressure to fully pop up the heads. Is there some kind of pressure booster I can install to fix this problem and about how much will it cost?

    What size pipe did you run of your main line to the heads? 3/4"? Whats your main line? Did you check your home water pressure befor you started? Also how many heads do you have on this zone? Whats the flow rate on the nozels you have on them?
