[Total: 0    Average: 0/5] You must sign in to vote For this project I shopped at Home Depot, used 3/4 inch PVC pipe and numerous random fittings, used 2 inch pop up sprinkler heads that are mostly 180 degrees, some are 360 degrees and a couple are 90 degrees. I bought PVC pipe cutters, pvc primer and glue and the brand is Christy’s! None of these are endorsed or affiliated products or retailers, just so ya know. =) I spent 7 on the project and it took 6 hours to put it in with a friend’s much needed help!

    If you have 3 zones they should each be on their own line so only one area is watered at a time and the timer should be set so no 2 zones come on at the same time.

    Little by little. That timer would be great if it had a solar pannel…..Lloll…They also make solar pumps for wells. You know just wondering ever thought of buying birds. They could?? Eat alot of pests mosquitos ants. Like 25 to 50 birds. Maybe 100 lizards. Be a great way to avoid bug spray. Also another thing is. 3 or 4 tomato plants in doors are great for your lungs.

    *With your current water pressure you need to set up more watering zones, and possible place your sprinkler heads closer together to get full coverage
    *You will need a larger volume water pump if you want to increase the water pressure,. But will your well support a larger pump?
    *Using a reducer to go from a larger diameter pipe to a smaller pipe can increase the water pressure at the distal end of your irrigation system, but that may cause your pump to wear out sooner.
    *You could get some 220 gal or larger drinking water safe totes and fill them from your from your well, then pump the water from the totes to water your land. This would likely reduce the wear and tear on your pump.
    *You can use a water pressure gauge to check out your current city and well water pressure. Then use that pressure reading to determine exactly how many sprinkler heads to place in each zone.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the videos. Bummer this didn't work for you.
    I Would love to see shorter videos as I'm not able to view the long ones from a phone, which means a lot dont get viewed.
