Riding the pump

What if, after all the designing, you find your pump cycling because your don't have enough GPM leaving the rotors(zones too small). Can a person experiment and turn on multiple zones to get the desired effect, that is riding the pump as you are irrigating. I have the Hunter SRC 900i. Does this control allow more than one zone to be activated at once?

nope not with the controller. YOu would have to turn the valves on manually together, or wire more than one valve into each termaial.. Thats the only way... it wont let that happenen electronically.

I would put larger nozzles in your rotors and tighten down on your heads to maintain the throw radius. This will result in an increase in your precipitation rate so you may want to shorten your feed cycles.
