Lee, consider using sprinkler control valves to control flow to stations.
The one thing I would do differently (there always seems to be one thing
that I would do differently) is to use the low pressure valves that
Rainbird sells for drip systems. Those will open at 3.5 psi and thus the
system can operate at lower pressure. The ones I bought require 15 psi to
open. The low pressure type would have saved me having to use a shallow
well pump to distribute the water. You can find the 3.5 psi valves on
Rainbird's site under Drip Irrigation. I was initially misinformed that all
of their valves require 15 psi to open. Not true!
