Sounds like low pressure. Maybe there's a partially-closed valve somewhere. Or the installers could have miscalculated how much water they actually had to work with. Or you might be seeing what is common with new sod on heavy soil, when the sprinklers are set for keeping the sod from drying out. Sod health is more important than some temporary puddling.
