[QUOTE=Kiril Until Tony does a full system audit with and reports the results back here one cannot determine what is actually required by the zones or if they can be reworked. Until that happens you should keep your uninformed "opinions" to yourself[/QUOTE]
Kiril, when I get the pressure gauge set up off of the RPZ then I can start collecting some data about the current sprinkler system. Do you agree?

Is the RPZ going to be right at the supply line? Or will it be a distance away from it? (size the pipes accordingly)
Boots, I'll make sure I can add the MV later. Would you just add one to the system at the RPZ or would you add another one to the lake supply line before it gets to any zones also? I was thinking to just have one to keep the restrictions down on the water coming from the lake.
I was going to place the RPZ about 10-15 feet from where I'm going to connect to the main city water line. Then all zones would be feed after the RPZ. The RPZ works like a backflow preventer and a shut off valve? Right. It will keep lake water from getting into the city water supply(backflow preventer) and allow me to turn off or on city water to feed the sprinkler system (shut off valve) when the pump is down for maintenance or inoperable. Am I thinking correctly about how it works?
