I have 2 acres and a well. There's no way I can water it with
sprinklers and hoses, so I don't try. I take alot of pride in caring
for my lawn, so the drought is especially painful because there's
nothing I can do about it.
I've had quotes for irrigation before, and they come in at about
$9,000. Plus, I've been told that I will definitely need a more
powerful well pump, and possibly a bigger well tank also.
Can someone tell me what exactly the well tank is for? I used to
think it was a reservoir, but now I'm not sure exactly what it's for
and why I'd need a bigger one. I can't find an explanantion with
I'm pretty intimidated by such a project, but I'll never be able to
pay that much, so I might as well look into it.
How difficult was the design aspect? What problems did you run into?
What brand of products should I look at?
My father-in-law is a home builder and has a plumber on his staff.
How much indoor plumbing needs to be done?
My next door neighbor has the same size lot, and he says his system
uses 9500 gallons per watering.
