    Outlaw Man nailed it. Sprinkler systems result in dead heads. Water in those lines gets stagnant. When line pressure changes you don't want that water back flowing into your supply. That is also why I suggested a valve at the end of the line so the system can be easily flushed.

    I can tell you from experience that a dry pipe system is a major maintenance headache. The valves that let the water overcome the air pressure require testing and maintenance on a regular basis. Plus you must maintain the source of your air or nitrogen charge. The new sprinklet heads do not just go off anymore. They activate only when they are exposed to the rated temperature.
