Learn to Recognize High Water Pressure
Date published: August, 2012
High water pressure is a common problem in many communities. As pressure increases, so does an irrigation system’s flow rate. The resulting symptoms include wasted water, higher water bills and damaged system components. But this big problem has a simple solution: Rain Bird PRS.
Rain Bird PRS rotors saved 0.70 gpm by reducing operating pressure to 45 psi.
Rain Bird PRS sprays saved 0.78 gpm by reducing operating pressure to 30 psi.
High or fluctuating pressure is increasingly common.
As pressure increases, so does an irrigation system's flow rate.
Laws restricting water use are being enacted across the U.S. — California's AB1881 to name just one
Higher water bills
Misting or fogging
Damaged system components
Rain Bird PRS regulates high or fluctuating pressure at the rotor or spray head.
Rain Bird Flow Optimizer™ technology maintains the ideal flow rate, putting down less water.
Rain Bird PRS rotors and sprays ensure compliance with water restrictions and minimize wear and tear to the irrigation system.
