    Default Low pressure

    Went and looked at this irigation job today and it has really low pressure. Cant find any leaks in the system and checked the meter and the meter isnt turning without it on. cause its on a hill the pipe comes up from the meter beside rock wall so you can see all the pie and see no leaks no bends or kinks. All taps where on full. Any help be appreciated guys.

    have you checked the mains pressure also check to make sure the valve is opening all the way otherwise disconnect and try blowing back there maybe something lodged in the pipes
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    are you getting low pressure when you remove the bung at the end of the line, or low pressure through sprinklers?

    Check that the water meter is fully on, or if there is an isolation valve partly shut off.
