    I just brought some PGA valves with the pressure reducers on them; going to use them on spray head zones and a zone for a planting bed( micro sprays). What are your thoughts?:)

    I would think that the flow control on the sprays would be more efficient....I'll chime back in later.

    In our area, excess pressure is not much of a problem. I use Hunter Institutional sprays with built in reg and an in line regulator for drip or micro sprays. A simple 30 psi reg is fool proof with no adj required.

    Only one job 2 years ago that had a pump that was oversized for the system did we use Hunters pressure reg on their valves.
