Irrigation Wells are becoming more and more popular among homeowners in the region. Many homeowners have invested thousands of dollars in lawn irrigation systems, and maintenance however a huge percentage of these homeowners and even commercial property owners rely on municipal water systems as the water supply to feed these systems. Today with droughts, water bans, along with large increases in supply costs many homeowners are increasingly looking for better and more feasible methods of watering their lawns.
The first step when approaching an Irrigation Water Well project would be to determining what flow requirements your system is going to need to operate sufficiently. The output of an irrigation system and a pumping system for that matter is measured in GPM (gallons per minute). If you already have an irrigation system in place you can call your provider/ Maintenance Company and request the systems GPM requirements. If you are still in the processes of installing a system it’s generally a good idea to talk to an irrigation specialist prior to installing to well to ensure that the systems are engineered accordingly to work efficiently.
