I will be adding on to a current irrigation system. The addition will almost double the size of the system. What is the best way to be sure that I will have enough pressure to run the irrigation system?

You need to give us more info


I assume your adding valves on to an existing mainline or manifold?

If the system works well now, why would it not work well if you added more valves?

Or, are you adding several heads onto existing zones? If thats the case you will most likely have problems.

Add additional zones. If the controller and wiring is an issue, sell the customer on the Nelson wireless valves that are battery operated. They are a snap to install, and can give you unlimited opportunities of additional irrigation (as long as you extend your main line).

With the battery operated, there is no link between the existing controller and wiring. It operates solo (per valve of course). Make sure you don't exceed your 12 GPM (if on residential 3/4 meter)!!!
