Ways to mitigate overall high system PSI

For the sake of completion I wanted to update. I upgraded the meat of all the valves to those with flow control, and replaced the diaphragms since I was in there. I was able to use the flow control to tune down those zones that were giving me trouble. Please don't judge me for the builder's pvc work. From left to right zones are 1,6,5,3,4,2 Thanks for your help @Wet_Boots

Ways to mitigate overall high system PSI

I found another thread that answered my questions. Thanks for your help. For reference Can you convert a Rainbird DV valve to a DVF?

Ways to mitigate overall high system PSI

Thanks for the help, and the tip. I'll look to imugr moving forward. Just to make sure that I understand, if I am to buy the DV100F valves and swap the tops out with the existing DV100 valves; will that essentially replace the guts of the valve? I ask because I assume that most of the working parts are attached to the top then? Are there any other parts like rubber seals, or anything of that nature that I should also pickup? Do I also need to determine if I have 3/4" or 1" valves ahead of time? ...

Ways to mitigate overall high system PSI

Quoted from "Wet_Boots" Use the flow controls on your zone valves to dial down the pressure. I'm not sure how to do that. Looking at the valves I can only see the one adjustment that is used to bleed the valve. What am I missing here? [img]https://www.dropbox.com/s/u7umt5uszus7jms/IMG_0797.HEIC?dl=0[/img]

Ways to mitigate overall high system PSI

First post here; I have a 6 zone system, 51 heads total, controlled by a V2 Rachio. Some of the zones are a mixed bag, and some make sense. I hope to move some around at a later date, but for the time being, high PSI is the issue. Most of my zones are on 4 in popup heads and they are all fitted with Hunter MP rotators. I've used a few different types to fit the zones, but they are mostly matched precipitation rates. Because there is high PSI in my system (measured at 81 PSI at the hose spicket) ...
