Gravity Feed from Tank or Irrigation Surface Solar Pump

On properties that have usable elevation change, water can be stored in a tank at a high point of the property, naturally pressurized from gravity for irrigation. A sensor inside the elevated storage tank ensures the tank stays full (A) and ready day or night. If every 1 psi = 2.31 feet of head,  a 18- 20 psi gravity fed drip line (B) requires lifting a storage tank at least 40 feet above the location you wish to irrigate. For higher pressure sprinklers use a Pro Irrigation Surface Pump (C) that can pressurize up to 45 psi.
