I am currently running 3/4hp submersible pump from pond to water yard, running 500ft of 1in pipe and two (sears) sprinklers rated at 60 psi min. they two is the most I can run. My question is I just picked up a large 60 gallon or so pressure tank, if I use this tank will I be able to run more sprinklers or am I better off to run pump straight thru with no pressure tank like I am now? I thought with a pressure tank I could get more sprinklers because of keeping higher pressure constantly. If this is so what the best way ti set this up without pump cycling so much. Which is a better way of running system pressure tank or not?
