It will need to water longer but not double. Basically what you are diagraming is triangular spacing versus square. Without looking at the precip rates, I am thinking ten percent longer. Best way is to set them the same as the square spacing times of the other zones and then increase / decrease your time until you reach the application reaches your expectations.
