Hello FarmBot World!
I have a question about the correct setup of the water line components.
In the “Hardware Documentation”, under the “Tools” section, the “Watering Nozzle” instructions show the pressure regulator attached after the solenoid valve. (https://genesis.farm.bot/docs/watering-nozzle)
Is this correct? It seems like the logical place for the pressure reducer is at the water supply (hose coupling), as this will lower the system water pressure for the rest of the water line. Otherwise, every barbed fitting and the tubbing will be subject to the pressure of the supply line (~100 psi in our area). I do not think the FarmBot water tubing or the barbed fittings will hold over time.
I also have a request for the FarmBot Folks (@roryaronson) to maybe design a 3D model file for a housing for the solenoid valve. I might suggest a rubber gasket or O-ring to seal the hole where the water tube exits the solenoid valve.
