    Need some suggestions on the cheapest and easiest way to get water in the fields. Plenty of water to pump from (17 acre lake), longest run would be around 1000 ft. I am getting around 35 gpm at one field with a 3 inch gas pump This run Is Around 400 Ft with A two Inch Line. Not Sure if pump will push 1000 Ft. Also what Type Of sprinkler nozzle. Thanks

    I have used the black corrugated pipe......similar to field tile and strung it through the field. Cut slits towards bottom and crank up the pump. Not perfect but it did get water to the area I wanted to reach!!!

    Good luck
