MP's for entire system

Has anyone been using MP's for the entire system? I need to do a install that is on a county water system that uses 3/4 for the service line and pressure around 55lbs. It is also around 200' from the meter to the lawn area. I would like to keep the flow down and do larger areas.

Is that your dynamic or static pressure?

Static. That is why I need to keep the flow low as I can. Pressure loss do to flow rates need to be kept at a minimum.

Measure your gpm at your desired pressure and you have something to work with.

Didn't have one. I would have preferred pvc but hey, it's better than nothing.
