Help! My underground sprinker system is not working - I turned on the water, and opened up the valves recently. I tried one of the zones the other day for the first time this spring, and the zone worked just fine.

Today, i turned on the system again, but none of the zones worked.

Typically i hear the water running thru the pipes if I'm inside the house while the system is on - but I cannot hear the water now.

The outside water spigot that the sprinkler system is connected to works fine - if I turnon the spigot, the water comes out. The valves are open that lead to the sprinker system

What can be wrong? could it be electrical? or a leak somewhere? Help!

Is it possible the system is on a timer and you may have to override the timer or reset it? Just a thought.

It had rained the night before, and the rain gauge was full of water, so the gauge prevented the sprinker system from coming on. Once I emptied the water, the system worked just fine.
