Drip water pressure too high
I have read through many posts that sound exactly the same as my issue.... recently added a zone to my irrigation system dedicated to a small drip system for a raised garden. I am using 1/4" laser drilled soaker tubing. It is controlled with a rainbird automatic valve with a 30 psi pressure regulator and filter combo. When the system coming on the hose is jetting water at high pressure. So I am confident I am either getting to high of pressure or the pressure regulator is not working.... My question is -- what have people done to fix this issue? I have read many posts but nobody has explained how they solved it.
I have checked the water pressure at a hose outlet -- it was ~65 psi. I thing I am not sure about, is our house has 2 water meters one for the irrigation and one for the house... not sure if they are different pressures, pretty sure they come from the same main water line. I will attempt to remove the valve tomorrow and try to measure the pressure at the control valve itself.
Thanks in advance
