    OK thanks. I will leave it as is and see how it works. If I need higher pressure for the irrigation I can always add a seperate regulator later.

  5. Should PRV be before iirrigation system and house? Or just house?

    If the PSI is rising above the PRV initial setting pressure I think it must be caused by either a defective PRV or a misplaced, too small or defective expansion tank which is not handling the thermal...

    I think it could be a flow problem. The static pressure may be fine but once the water starts flowing it is dropping quickly and it is not enough to push the heads up. I would check to make sure...

    You may want to check the incoming pressure before the PRV over a day's time to see if it is changing. If it is contact the city or water department. If not then either you need to readjust the PRV...
