Wells and Sprinkler Systmes

Can one install a sprinkler system if the water is provided by a well. Or is it limited to those who have city water? If possible, are there any recommended brands for those who live on wells?

Yes you can install a sprinkler system which will be supplied by well water. You must know two things about the well pump:
1. You must know how much water the pump supplies (gpm)
2. You must know thee water pressure at the outlet of the pump

Here is an excellent link to information about pumps:

Once you know these two things you design the sprinkler system so that you do not exceed these limitations on any zone in the sprinkler system.

Please read the following information about designing a sprinkler system:
