I am trying to setup a DIY sprinkler system for my 20meterx40meter horse arena. I am thinking sprinkler heads on risers (attached to fence posts) daisy-chained with pvc pipe or hex pipe with a valve at each sprinkler head and a valve for the overall system. Now, here is the tricky part - the arena I am looking to water, does not have access to running water. I have 2-250gal IBC tanks that I am hoping to use as my water source. Here are my questions:
1. What type of pump would I need for the water tanks?
2. Would I get enough water pressure off the pump to push through the system?
3. What specs do I need on the sprinklers?
4. How many sprinklers?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
