Question about Garden
These are home depot valves and seem so work fine but the pressure is low and won't pop up the sprinklers.
If it is a anti-siphon valve remove the anti-siphon cap and let it rip. Remove cap on adjacent valve and let it rip check to be sure the gieser is identical. If so let it run for a long time the leak will eventually show up. Because if it worked before and doesn't work now it has a leak. Water takes the path of least resistance. I have had them access the landscape drain before and you the leak didn't appear until it emptied at the street or followed a gopher hole a few hundred feet before surfacing. Listen carefully you will probably hear it.
If water just dribbles over the anti-siphon portion with cap removed it is still not opening flow control know may be turned down. In fact I would check to ensure this isn't the entire problem turn ir counter clockwise until it stops. This is the round know in the center of the valve.
