Non Rachio related question.
My system uses reclaimed water that’s provided by a regional utility. I presume it’s on a shared line with the 1000 other homes in my community, but I have
assurances from my HOA that there is enough pressure for each household.
I use a combination of rotors and MP rotators and I have tuned them as best I could for arc & throw.
Using the rachio flow meter, my longest drip of my drip lines gets about 18GPM, which is the highest output zone for me.
Another zone that has 8 MP Rotators (MP3500) that should average around 3GPM each is only recording 13GPM for the whole zone - I was expecting over 20GPM (8 x 3GPM = 24GPM).
Could replacing the valve for the zone increase pressure? As far as I can tell, it’s just a cheap hunter valve thats impacted in dirt in a valve box.
Are there pros that specialize in this type of irrigation forensics without charging an arm and a leg?
Any other ideas welcome.
