this may sound crazy Hell! i dont know! but tried reading stuff online its sounds like if im pulling water using a

1inch or larger size of pipe then the line going to the 1st sprinkler needs to b smaller and the next one after that needs to b smaller after that does that sound ok or not!1 inch suction then 3/4 to first head then 1/2 to the next would i get the same coverage or pressure

Definitely try a larger suction pipe. I've never used anything smaller than 1-1/4 inch for pump suction.

How does it work with only one sprinkler? The water supply might be smaller than you think.
