Check the back-flow preventor itself. They should have shut off valves on either side of it. Obviously if any one of them is closed, you are not going to get water.

Not sure what is wrong.

I recently bought a home which has a rainbird RC-1260Bi automatic sprinkler system. I know the system works because when I did the walk through everything was fine with the system. The bad thing is, I didn't bother to learn how the system works. I have a manual now and everything seems to be in order except......I don't know how to turn the water on to the system. Is there a value I need to look for? I did find what looks to be a off/on valve in the front yard. Also close by was what looks like some kind of backflow contraption. I turnd on the value I found in a hole in the yard. and no water. Any suggestions??
