You have what is commonly known as a "grey water" supply. The purple color on heads is standard ID for grey water. If you can get them now, you might as well.

Thanks for the information. The reclaimed water is supplied by the county utility company and as far as being reclaimed from what; I'm not sure. Storm run off and who knows what else. Anyway, here in Florida it's the best source for watering since using regular water would be cost prohibitive. I'll check into the purple coding as I have not seen that down here on any of the sprinkler systems I've looked into. Thanks for helping!! Any other tips would be appreciated!!

Is the reclamation of the water supplied by a municipality? If so, not much is needed except for the "violet colors " on the valves, heads, valve boxes, and pipe (the national do not drink color). But, that may differ depending on your county and city requirements. If, however, it is not reclaimed by a municipality of some sort, make sure you use a self cleaning valve. Such valves as the Rain-Bird PESB series or the Hunter Sentry (if memory serves me correctly). These will automatically clean the metering port on the diaphragm on every start and shut down. Most reclaimed water suppliers filter the water from all debris and treat for bacteria, so most of this will be unnecessary (with the exception of the purple color pvc pipe, and valve boxes).

Reclaimed from what? Explain the water source.

How to design a system with reclaimed water

I would like to install a sprinkler system but have to use reclaimed water. Sometimes the pressure is not that great. I would like to know if there any special considerations for this type of install. The area is relatively small; approximately 1500 SF.
