Under Pressure

Everybody loves water pressure — especially if you’re getting the slip-n-’-slide ready for the kiddos or hopping in the shower after a long day. However, the novelty does start to wear off when it comes to your irrigation system.

Over time, high water pressure can damage the core components of your irrigation system, and this kind of deterioration can be costly. We’ve seen many firsthand examples of extensive damage to irrigation systems caused by high water pressure — even when the pressure falls within the specified range of the component rating.

Common damage from poor pressure regulation can include:

  • Breaks in the lines
  • Backflow leaks
  • Broken sprinkler heads
  • Uneven distribution of water

Although the components of an irrigation system may be rated for much higher pressures, the sprinkler heads are designed to operate “best” at lower pressures.

This means that the even distribution of water improves significantly when the pressure pushing the water through the nozzle is within a certain range. You may love the high water pressure in your shower, but the experts at Rainy Days have Seen Some Things: like irrigation systems with extensive damage.

What’s a Pressure Reducer?

Irrigation systems are designed to sustain water pressure from 65 to 75 psi. For any pressure above 100 psi, we recommend enlisting the help of a pressure reducer. Pressure reducers, commonly referred to as pressure regulators or pressure-reducing valves, help reduce incoming water pressure to a rate that’s manageable for your irrigation system.

Our irrigation technicians can check the water pressure with a pressure gauge at the backflow and install a pressure reducer if needed. We’ll make sure your existing irrigation system runs as efficiently as possible.

Hallmarks of High Water Pressure

  • Leaks in piping, valves or backflow
  • Fog of water rising above the sprinkler head when in operation
  • Poor distribution of water-Poor coverage
  • Increased water use
