Thanks for your reply John, that's what I thought. Our brook runs year round and has good depth and flow, so I'm confident it will supply the 2".
I'm still new to irrigation. Do they make a 2" black pipe? We need to have a minimum of a 400' run, so I imagine that would be quite the spool.
My other concern is the incline. Although I don't know what it is in degrees, its a 50m length to the orchard. It's a moderate to steep incline...we're slightly winded when we walk up from the brook..lol.
Although the ramjet is great, it doesn't provide the GPM we require during the dry season. We would like to be able to re-fill our totes within a couple of hours for watering during these times.
I still have the 2" pump in the box and could return for a 1" if need be if it would save some $$$ on pipe/hose. Any further insight to our water movement goals is appreciated. Thanks!
