deep well pump in river

Rate this Entry
I have been pumping water from a river to run my lawn sprinklers for about ten years, but never seem to have enough pressure to run more than one sprinkler at a time. I had a one half horse craftrsman shallow well pump drawing the water for about 90 ft. and pushing it for another 50 ft.. A pump guy suggested that I use a one horse pump set up as a deep well, with the jet in the river. The results are pretty much the same as the shallow well pump. I need the 90ft. draw in order to reach deep enough water, about 5 feet deep when it is shallow. I have a pressure tank which is in good order. The pressure switch is set at 30psi/50psi, would it help to increase to 40psi60psi.
