Static Pressure readings on day of test:

Meter A = 91 psi
Meter B = 49 psi

Meter A and B share the same 4" mainline that is looped with 7 other water sources which scares the hell out of me which is why we have this Controller/System isolated to just run the 97 stations on a Tucor RKD.

We came into the project when it was about a 1/3 of the way completed and it was a total bastard child. The day we stepped onto the job the site was lacking water sources for what was already in the ground, then we started adding 70 - 100 zones a year.

Once the powers at be or check writers finally realized we knew what we were talking about they have been working with us to get everything right, yet they still do not like writing those checks. We isolated areas to avoid possible 500 - 600 gpm mainline breaks. LOL
