How to increase water pressure??

I have a sprinkeler system with 3/4 pv pipe. The system is connected to a garden hose. And the pressure is low so some places of my lawn arent getting enought of water. I dont know how to connect it to the main water supply. The system is in my back yard and the only water connection I can connect it is the place where I connect my hoses. Please Help!!!!

That sounds like a pain. But it's possible. If you want the easy route have a profesional do it. If you really want to do it yourself it may be tricky. You need to plug off the end that the hose connects to, dig up the mainline near the water meter, tie into line put in a main valve, blow plug, backflow device, and then find your main sprinkler line and connect into wherever. Finding the best place to tie into your sprinkler main line might be tricky, or it might not. Good luck.

Hard worker
It is not very hard just do your research and go for it. Do you have a meter or a well for your supply?
