How about you make some measurements of the actual flow? Stop with the "2.5 gpm heads" crapola. Man up and do the job right.

Thanks Wet Boots, I know... I know. You mentioned that in a previous post. I'll do what you said and calculate the flow at the meter says. So just get a stop watch and determine how many GPM each zone is putting out? So basically, turn on a zone and then go to the meter and in a minutes time see how many gallons shows on the meter. Easy as that? Right? Thanks for getting me back on track. I really appreciate it.

You might try nozzling your sprinklers correctly first.

the thing is, you have to provide accurate data all the way - and when you can clock the meter and get an accurate number for flow, that is what you have to do
