PGP - Installing Check Valve

If you’re PGP heads are leaking water after the system is shut off and the flow of water reduces over time, your heads are experiencing low head drainage. Low head drainage is where the lowest heads on the line weep the water in the pipe after that valve has shut down.

You can install a check valve at the bottom of the rotor. The part number for the Filter/Screen Check Valve Sub-Assembly is 142300.
