low static

hi Pass1, yup. Its interesting. I actually helped a friend of mine for the last month or so install his sprinkler. His works great by the way. First time for both of us. That's what got me on the kick of installing myself one. As it turns out he has a lot more pressure than I do, I think because he lives real close to the water tower and is in a relatively new neighborhood and has better infrastructure. I didnt quite fully understand the whole pressure loss deal (probably still fully dont) which...

Low Water Pressure

Im in East Texas in a town called Longview. My house is on the highest part of the lot, and the ground slopes away slightly from the house on all 4 sides. Elevation change from the house to the meter is about a foot I would say. 15 inches at the most. Distance is about 60 feet. 15 feet from meter to the road. just as a fyi, there is not very good soil here.

Given the pressure I have now, and the amount of yard to water, and a future decrease in pressure, it looks like my design will need a booster pump....

Low Water Pressure

Hi, This is my first post, so I hope I put this in the right place. My yard is pretty big, almost 1/2 acre I want to install a sprinkler system so I have been gathering some information I am on city water and have a 1 inch meter. I dug down to the main line and it is 1 inch too. PVC. I measured the water pressure at my hose spigot and I was surprised to see that the gauge said I have 40 PSI. Since Im on city water, that seems real low to me. its about 70 feet from the meter to the hose spigot. I...
