Thank you Wet Boots,
you have always been a big help here.

I believe my system seems well laid out. Wherever I have woreked on my system, I have always stuck with the 3/4" pipe, actually upgrading it to the thicker pipe....( the same pipe for regular water lines in a house.....not the thinner pipe they seemed to always use 15 years ago when it was first installed).

I find working on sprinklers very interesting and enjoyable. I've done house plumbing for years....this is a whole new type of plumbing......I look forward to learning more and more about it. This forum has been very helpful.

If the system is properly designed, you won't be wasting water. Don't skimp on pipe size. In the days before rotor heads with built-in pressure regulators, one would simply throttle down the flow control on a zone valve, if there was too much pressure in a zone. And since I believe you are going to be using anti-syphon control valves, you do have the flow controls.
That is true but that include wind, slow, soil, etc . There is more too it then what brand of rotor.
