    No gasketed pipe as far as I know. Pump pressure is somewhere around 90 but I think it may exceed that according to how many stations are on.

    Those couplings seem too good to be true. Do they hold up under high pressure/

    The same principles apply only on a much larger scale. There may be 4 or more valves wired on the same station which can be tricky. The biggest thing I had to learn was finding wire faults. Had to but new equipment and learn how to use it. But thanks to many here on this site I am getting it down.

    There are 4 separate controllers that are not linked together. At some point I would like to change this and somehow link them together
