comment How can I get low water pressure in sprinkler system fixed?
There's not really a question of whether or not the builder will honor the warranty, but I wanted to try to learn a little more about it before I put the ball back in their court so that I could more effectively monitor the situation. I do think that it's important, because there have been no results to this point. Sure, in a perfect world, the builder would take care of the situation without any effort on my part, but then it would be fixed now. I've been having to water by hand, so the sooner I can get this taken care of, the sooner I can put that time to better use.

@Jason - That's a good idea. The guy from the builder is a nice guy, but he's pretty scatter-brained. He often seems to forget the details of these issues as they come up.

Added an additional note to address provide more information regarding some of Tester101's comments.

@Tester101 Well, this is what everyone started out with when I brought up the problem, but as I said in the notes section of my question, the sprinkler system seems to be the only system affected, so the solution is unfortunately not likely to be this simple. Thanks for the link tough.

@Jason The plumber claimed not to be able to test the pressure to the sprinkler system, he showed me where the valve was, but said that he couldn't mess with it or something along those lines. He did check to see that the sprinkler line was fully opened though, so that doesn't seem to be the problem.

Thanks for the answer. To take your suggestions in turns: Clogged Line: The head of one of the sprinklers was removed by the builder, so this wouldn't seem to be the sole reason, but may contribute for other sprinklers, I'll keep an eye out for that. Don't have any information regarding internal line clogs. Damaged Line: These suggestions are very helpful, Thank you. Not Enough Pessure: There are several zones, and a one that is being affected has only two sprinklers, and is still affected. So of these, a damaged or internally clogged line seems most likely

@Jason There is a master valve for the sprinklers. That's not the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion. A quick google search didn't seem to lead to an obvious source, so I'll have to look into this option when I have more time.

comment Is the drain cover in my shower sufficient?
Thanks for the answer, especially for pointing out the potential for creating a problem where none existed to begin with. I'd expected that it was something that I would have to deal with in any case, but I wanted the opinion of someone with actual experience to judge the relative importance of preventing hair from going down the drain.
