Re: sprinkler and water pressure question.


You need to consider both pressure and volume (flow rate). Your water supply (municipal or well) and the plumbing in your house can only deliver so much water volume to any given point. That's primarily why in-ground sprinkler systems often have zones. Two sprinklers are bleeding off your water supply twice as fast as one.
