Stumped

I am trying to troubleshoot my system for the first run of the summer. I turned on the control box nothing happened so

I went and manual turned on the master value and tried a few the valves for a couple zones and nothing came on. I checked the water valves running into the master and water is following but my meter for the irrigation system which is right after the master valve and it is saying nothing is going past the master.

I am really not sure what to check now :(

Try to run the system without the controller. Use manual actuation of the electric valves.

Somewhere upstream of your system is a shutoff valve that is not open. That's the easy guess. More obscure possibilities are a jammed check valve in a backflow preventer. What type of backflow preventer is your system fitted with?

Is the flow control on the master valve open?
