How water pressure affects irrigation systems

Water pressure can cause issues with the irrigation system depending on if it is too high or too low.

If the water pressure is too low, it could cause the sprinklers to not water the correct distance, or some sprinklers to not water depending on how many heads you have attached to the zone.

If the water pressure is too high, it could cause the valves to stay open due to the pressure. It can cause potential damage to the pipes of the irrigation system.

Having the correct amount of water pressure for your valves is very important in making sure that you are getting the most out of your irrigation system.
