50psi regulator, where do you source?

besides the hunter accusync, where do you get inline water pressure regulators, that are set to 50 psi? rainbird had them all the way up to 50, and recently dropped 50 and only go to 40psi.

Hope any of you have a good source, for good but reasonable regulators. Thanks,

Why not just a regular pressure reducing valve?

50 psi is crap, I like 70-90. Get a booster pump.

I find we are starting to use these more on the 70 + psi jobs we install.....

Finally I can convince my boss that the high pressure isn't always a blessing..

There is a prv, this is for fine tuning in the system.........but I guess no one uses them just like rainbird told.me the reason they discontinued the 50psi version of inline prezsure regs

50 psi is overkill for drip, and regulators are really for drip, and not for anything else.

Why not put a adjustable on a valve? I tried a couple fixed accusync's but ended up replacing them with adjustables. The last one was on a job in West Seattle, the HO had 120psi! It was new construction and they ended up putting in a prv and reducing it to 80. This was still causing issues with pipe that the carpenters had put it, mainly scratched cl 200, that was blowing apart. adjustable accusync on the master brought it down to around 40 or 50.
