The first thing I would check is to see if there was a broken lateral (the part of the piping between the valve and the heads).[V] You can check that by trying other zones.
Give more info so that we can visualize your installation;
Has the system ever worked properly?
Where is the supply piping connected to the water system? Before or after the tank?
When and if it has ever operated properly, does the pump cycle on and off or are you using a pumpstart relay?
What do you have to do to get psi back after shutting down system?[8)]

thank you for your help.
first off none of the zones work at all. the system has worked it actually lost all pressure well running. as far as the supply it is connected after the tank the tank sits on top of the well pump. when it ran it ran totally fine now i just cant get any water to run in the system no even through the well hose spigget. anything else you need to know to help me with this please ask. thank you brian
