Although off topic (I apologize), I think you found I really good find with that video. That is a very good tutorial for the sprinkler valve modding and the instructor was very well informed and knew his techniques. Although the video was a re-cap for me, I still found myself generally surprised on how well he did his work.

Irrigation, plumbing, sprinklers, lawn care, basically wherever you see the rest of the pipes and sprinkler heads.

Okay. In the video, the guy used 3" PVC...wouldn't that not be good since you said the flow is too weak?

I wouldn't advise it, but you can always throw the numbers in GGDT and decide for yourself.
