Wish it had a master valve. I sure would give that a try. Now that I've seen the real pressure I'm concerned about a repair the installer made. The DCV was driven over while the system was being installed, and I got a glimpse of a compression coupling inside the jumbo box. I don't have much faith in those things. Seems like the pipe loves to pull out.

Add a master valve, if possible, and make it the regulator, too.

Yes, it is common around here. It isnt exactly poly, and is made to glue into PVC fittings. I don't use them, but a lot of guys do.

Pre-fab swing joints for me please.

I make my own with Marlex. When ever I would buy the Pre made they would be too long or too short. I did s zone of 12" pops for a putting green today using my home made swing joints. I will post pics later.

I custom-made every swing joint. Depending on how deep the lateral was and how much mulch was being added, it's impossible to know the length until you're in the trench and aligning for finish grade. Felco #2 clippers work great for swing pipe.
