Changing Lawn Sprinkler Companies

It is a fallacy that the company that installed a lawn sprinkler system is the only one that can service it. Any good service tech should be able figure out the layout of your system in minutes.

I'm not sure if this will help but baseboard heating systems use pressure reducing valves that automatically refill the system when the pressure gets too low. Here is a link for one that goes from 10-25PSI. Best of Luck.

Mysterious sprinkler leak

I agree with Mrfixit. The water is going somewhere. If is is flowing as fast as you say then it is usually visible unless your soil drains extremely fast.
