I agree with Ray on this one. It would save you more money having two manifolds rather than spending more for extra wire and pipe.

Overall I agree with ray and rvli but I think he makes a good point in that if you a covering long distances then the horse shoe design is a good idea from the stand point of pressure loss. But, why couldnt you use the 1.25 poly throuhgout the entire system in that case?

Thanks,

I would like to suck water from a pond for my sprinkler system. The pump will be 10 ft from the water and about 3 ft above the water. The furthest heads will be about 100 ft from the pump and 15 ft above the pump. What size and/or brand pump do you recommend? Any input appreciated.

I don't know about pumps very well, but most irrigation systems I've seen running on a pump are on Goulds pumps.

I suggest going to your local commercial plumbing supply store and ask them. They will tell you what you need and can explain why that particular pump is sufficient. Their seems to be so many different pumps it is best to ask professionals.

Thanks,
