Your saying a lot of people have a separate well for irrigation? I guess it makes sense. In my neighborhood in Michigan, I think everyone just has the main well for their house which also is for irrigation.

I might try to tweak up the pressure some off of 30-50psi. It makes sense that this would help the zones that are using too much water.

How do I increase the outflow of the rotors?

Thanks for help
