I just took on a shallow well project and got it running. But Im having a problem with maintaining pressure when I run morea than one sprinkler head. The nuts and bolts:
I have a 3/4 HP pump (pressure set to 30/50)
A 8 Gallon Bladder tank (psi at 27-28)
Static water is a 12ft
1 1/4 Well tip with 4ft screen is at 26ft reduced to a 1 draw line going up to pump
This pump will run all day at 43 psi on one sprnikler head but when I turn a second one on it slowly starts to lose pressure and it eventually drops down to 0.
When i turn my valve off it will build back up to cut off (50psi)
I cheked my GPM and its at 6.
Can I increase production and maintain good pressure buy jetting a second well and tie them in togather?
