    If I design a zone that is near max capacity of the available water,say 15gpm available @45psi,heads will use 13gpm@45psi....

    ....is there any advantage to using a flow-control zone valve?

    I would be careful about maxing out a zones capability. What are you going to do in the future when the water pressure drops?

    How much extra is a valve with flow control. $1.50 max?

    Note ... can't allow myself to agree with JW, might go to his head.

    Think I was up and posting by 6:20am for fun? I left the house at 6:50am. Just now got back. 3pm. Put in 8 hours, and it feels like a half day to me.
