Distance from meter to the street is 30 feet. Probably like 35-40'.

Well, I did all designing by myself using irrigationtutorials.com I have 3/4" meter and supply line but went with 1 1/4" poly for mainline and 1" for laterals.

How long is that 3/4" supply line from the street to you meter? Just curious.

One of the common mistakes that home owners make when giving rainbird the information to use to make the design is that they tell Rainbird that they have a 3/4" mainline.

Why would I tell that my supply line 1" when it is REALLY 3/4"? It won't make things any better ?(
Were they asking for the main line size going into your house to the meter, or what size pipe you plan on using for your sprinkler system main line? Two different things that will each play a role in how much flow/pressure you can maintain for your zones.

However you can never get more psi and water volume then what your water meter has the ability to supply

Upsizing the piping reduces friction loss . 1" is the industry standard

However you can never get more psi and water volume then what your water meter has the ability to supply

It just gives you a better ability to work with what you have
