Irrigation Tool - Pressure Reducing Zone Kits

Recommended Posts

It is early yet and I am still fiddling with the irrigation tools, but so far...awesome!

I did run into one snag. When setting up a drip zone and using a drip control kit with a pressure reducing filter, the calculations for the zone don't seem to account for pressure regulation, just pressure reduction.

For example, traditionally my input pressure is 65 psi, but the zone kit would reduce that to an output pressure of 40 psi, no matter the input. In the software, it seems to work that the input pressure gets reduced by 40psi, leaving an output pressure of 25 psi in this example. Not what you want to ensure your calcs come out right.

Any ideas?

Also, can you use a hatch for drip zone outlet devices instead of it showing the pipe? At smaller scales, the piping won't read at 18" or 12" on center, so we need diagrammatic control!
