The reason I'm soliciting comments is to find out if anyone has ever used the dial device at a master valve or one at a valve for some length of time. If so, what were your results? One concern I have for the master valve application (if it would work ) is I have both sprays and rotors on that system.
If your zone valves have flow controls, you can always further reduce pressure in one or more zones.
Most people don't realize that a PRV has a tremendous friction loss on top of its pressure regulation. The regulating master valve has an insertion loss of about 10 psi
