    Hi there, i have managed to get 3" petrol honda water pump which I think will be suitable for my small farm irrigation, the source of water is the lake.
    I just wanted to distribute the water using 3/4" water pipes to five sprinkler so that it can be easy to supply water to a larger area for a short time. now the problem comes that when I turn the pump at the highest speed the pump shut down it self, and when I turn the pump at the medium speed the pressure reduces and the sprinkler does not supply water to large area.
    Does and one have an idea on how to distribute water and what else should i do in order to achieve a high pressure at the sprinkler.
    Thanks in advance.
