Your description on exactly what you did is a little vague, but here's my thoughts. Where you tapped into the mainline for the sprinkler system, you must have a backflow valve. If you didn't, you are risking contamination of you household water. In my city, my backflow is inspected ($25) by the city every year to make sure it is functioning. If it was defective or if I didn't have one, they would not allow me to use the system until it was corrected. I think that may be your problem.
