Irrigation System Installation
Office Buildings Filling a House Tank
Q. Where should the water valve regulator be installed on an irrigation system?
A. The valve should be installed on the customer side of the meter and after the backflow preventer. In cold climates, the valve and piping should be protected from freezing.
Q. Will the valve work when installed in a location that has an open tank?
A. Yes, when the water pressure goes from a normal pressure to zero atmospheric pressure, the valve can produce outstanding savings.
Q. How critical is it to have 10X the diameter of the pipe of straight pipe before and after the valve?
A. In this second generation adjustable valve it is not critical, but if you must choose, leave more straight pipe before the valve than after.
