Pressure exerted by the atmosphere at the surface of the earth due to the weight of air.
Pressure is reduced .5 PSI per 1000' of elevation
Water pressure due to elevation, water will gain/lose .434 PSI per foot
Stored potential energy available to force water through pipe, fittings, hose, and adapters.
Normal Operating Pressure
Found in water distribution system during normal consumption demands.
Part of the total available pressure not used to overcome friction loss of gravity while forcing water through pipe, fittings, hose, and adapters.
Forward velocity at a discharge opening while water is flowing.
