stickey rotor

I have several rotors that are stickey and refuse to pop up this spring. They will come up if you pull them by hand. The system is 1 yr old. They are Hunter I-20 stainless 4-inch. Any ideas

Is there enough pressure to pop them up? Is it resisting to come up when you try to pull it up by hand even with the water on?

There should be plenty of pressure, all of the rest of them come up. If you just tap the sticky ones, they will pop up.

You probably have debris in the wiper seal. Take the sprinkler out of it's casing, clean it out a little, and try it again, if that doesn't work, you can also get new wiper seals to replace in the sprinklers. Try the first step and let me know what happens.

Thanks,
Alex
