the Badger 25 allows a 25 gpm flow, but wants you to keep it down to 15 gpm continuous flow - go much higher than 15 gpm, and the pressure loss through the meter becomes a problem

what is your static (nothing flowing) water pressure there?

OH, well maybe I read the PDF wrong, oh well.

I don't know what my static pressure is at the meter. I called my water company and they said the PSI is around 100.

Unless your basement meter is 100 feet or more from the street, you'll get the 10 gpm no problem, and likely 15 gpm or more.

That's good. On the thread below this one I mentioned that I had a guy come out yesterday and give me an estimate. He said that the GPM was 15.

Honestly, after I sort of made a plan, I'm not worried about how much GPM I get now since I am thinking about going to rotaries for the most part. I am still waiting for Rainbird to send me their design. I will post that one and the one that the guy gave me yesterday whenever Rainbird emails me!

I still have a few more questions. I tend to over think everything and make sure I have everything set in place before I pull the trigger.

Did you ever get your design from Rain Bird? I sent my for in about 3 weeks ago and have not heard back yet.
