Looking at installing a new irrigation system to cover 2 small garden beds and a small patch of lawn. Going to use our water tanks, and trying to figure out what size pump I would need? Would it be possible to run 2 pipes off the 1 tank to water at different times - i.e 1 for the garden bed drippers & the other for a 3-4 popups for the lawn? Any recommended Automatic Timers that would best suit this need?
Also, a neighbor gave me all of their left over pollypipe and I was hoping to use some of that and my existing pollypipe for the garden. Would there be any issue using a 13mm pipe to run from the tank to the garden, then in the garden use a 19mm pipe in the beds to connect up for the drippers? Thanks in advance for any help.
