    Well pump cycling with sprinklers

    Whenever I run my sprinkler system, my well pump will cycle on for about 1:40 and then off for :40. The output of the sprinkler system is obviously not matching the output of the pump. I am afraid the pump with cycle itself to death. I’m wondering if adjusting some of the sprinkler nozzles...

The sole purpose of this pump is to run my irrigation. For some reason I just cannot get the pressure up. (insert cialis joke here) The heads run...
