Field irrigation, pumping from pond

Ok, got the message loud and clear. I've printed the information on the site you gave us and shared it with my husband. Next step is to hook the pump up and check it out. It's raining here today, thank goodness, so we will wait till tomorrow, hopefully, to check it out and see what the pump will do. Hope you all have a blessed evening and we will look forward to writing again soon. Thank you again for your knowledgeable assistance. granny

Wet Boots, thank you for answering. I was writting jmduke7 and didn't know you had also answered. We are so far out in the country that we only have dialup. I have sent emails out trying to find out more information on the pump as you suggested. It is old and I don't know if the company archives will show up the information requested or not but I am hoping to hear something from them. The impact heads we are watering the yard with now don't extend out into the lawn area. We drag hoses around to ...

Now that's my kind of talk! I'm known for my cooking and have blueberries in the freezer just for cobblers. One of our favorites along with homemade icecream.

Now back to work before I'm tempted to break my diet...I like what you said about the cycle stop valve. Our zones will all be different for sure and you are right, the pressure will be different in each one. What you w...

Field irrigation, pumping from pond

Our friends have hired experts and put in deep wells to water their blueberries. They use misters in the rooting beds and drip hoses in the field. I think the pond water has more nutrients and will be better in the long run for the plants than the cold well water and it is already here and plentiful in drought times. We are over 12" below normal in rainfall now. We are a mom and pop operation and semi-retired. Our blueberries we hand clipped and rooted last year after the blueberries were harves...

Field irrigation, pumping from pond

We have a 3 phase, 5 HP pump already and want to irrigate an 8 acre field using dirty water from our 18 acre pond with impulse sprinkler heads extended about 4' above the ground for new blueberry fields. The rows will be 10' apart and several hundred feet in length. This is the easy part. We don't know anything about sprinkler systems. After reading this column, I ordered the ICC 800 Hunter controller, and 8- 1 1/2" PGV valves to get started along with the 3 expansion modules to expand the syste...
