Question about Pumps

Postby LJUIV » Mon Dec 08, 2008 11:11 am

I was hoping for some insight on water pumps. I need something that can handle around 40 acres.

The deepest part would be 2'. The water source is 100 yds away and the lift is 10'-15'

10-12'' - got ya




Now the entire 40 acres wont have to be flooded at once. The way it is designed we can flood 4-8 acres pieces at different times...
Anyway, I don't know much about pumps and I was currious if it were cheaper to go with one that could fit on the PTO of a tractor... I have tried looking online at different pumps but it is hard to find ones that look like they are big enough. Thanks for any info you guys can share.

if you are only flooding 4-8 acres at a time a 4 inch pump will work.i know this because we have a similar setup at my farm.
