Low Pressure On One Zone

Have a 6 zone system with Rainbird valves. Currently have one zone that has low pressure. I have already replaced the bladder in the valve and ohm tested the solenoid. The solenoid tested at 40 ohms. I'm guessing my next step would be checking for a leak on this zone, would that be correct.

How old is the valve? Is the flow control open, if there is one?

Not sure of the age of the valve, and it does not have flow control.

Okay, does it have low pressure when activated by the timer and when you activate it manually at the valve? Or just when by the timer?

Low pressure when activated manually and by the timer.

Look for a break in the zone. Puddles of water. Soft ground.

Well today I walk on the side of the house to where the valve box is and the valve box is half full of water and the ground in front of it is real soggy. Will dig it up tomorrow
