I want to irrigate using water from a lake/stream. What do I need for this?
Many sites today are successfully using untreated water from lakes, streams or wet-wells to irrigate. Of course, this does require special equipment. You will need a pump to move the water and to provide water pressure for your system. You will also need a dirty water filter to make sure that debris (even from the cleanest lake or stream water) does not clog your sprinklers.. While Rain Bird does not manufacture pumps, our equipment is compatible with most pump choices.
