Thank you very much for the information.

I am curious as to the method used to determine the adequacy of the system. Being that I do not know anything about sprinklers and I have not been able to find anything on line, I do not know the math involved in designing the system. If that makes any sense??

Is there a computer program involved?

Otherwise, This helps me out greatly! Thanks again!

Computer programs that design sprinkler systems cost large dollars. No freebies out there. What is out there for free are charts that show friction losses in pipe. You already drew a decent design, so turn it into numbers, that total up all the pressure losses from source to sprinkler heads.
