sprinklers not fully rising

We just installed a 3 zone system and 2 of the zones seem to work fine but one occasionally does not fully raise the sprinklers. yet if I turn it off, then turn it back on, they work fine. I am using a Water Master 3/4" valve it is feeding qty 4 Toro 53738 sprinklers each with a foot of funny pipe and I used 3/4"sch 40 pvc pipe for everything.
The first time I saw this happen I still had the 3.0 gpm nozzles then I switched to the 1.5 gpm (changed all 4).
Any thoughts would be appericated

If they work fine at some point, then you have enough water the valve isnt fully opening, if you find a spot where you layed pipe for that zone before sprinkler heads, dig it up, and cu the pipe....turn on the valve...if there is full water coming out (alot of force and flow) then it lays within the sprinkler heas, funny pipe, or line......if you dont have enought flow when you cut it, and then you turbn on the water and you get alot of flow out of the cut pipe you know its the valve........let me know what you think

Hope that Helps!

The tapping point woulnt matter because once he plays with the valve they turn on fine. I would chekc the valve.
