What would cause air to sputter from faucets and toilets after your lawn sprinkler runs through a cycle?

LAWN SPRINKLERS HAVE A VERY LARGE PIPE(USUALLY A 1 INCH) WHILE THE REST OF THE HOME USUALLY HAS A SMALLER LINE. WHEN THE SPRINKLER VALVE IS OPENED, WATER FROM THE UPPER PART OF THE HOUSE CAN DRAIN INTO THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM LEAVING AIR POCKETS. WHEN YOU SHUT OFF THE SPRINKLER THIS AIR IS EJECTED FROM THE HOUSE FIXTURES. OTHER THAN THE SURPRISE, IT SHOULD POSE NO PROBLEM.
