    22 gpm is probably out the window. 35 gpm is more like it, if you have a one-inch curbside meter for 2 Oklahoma acres.

    The well, when and if it's drilled, will set a flow rate ceiling.

    Is "Oklahoma acres" like a bakers dozen?

    I refuse to even consider a 22 gpm flow on a property that size. If it were my gig on city water I would be close to maxing out that meter capacity, to keep the watering restricted to the optimal overnight hours.

    You still didn't answer the question.

    Accept the implied "I don't care" as the answer and look to concentrate on things more relevant. Like spring training baseball (Yeah!!)

    Most districts require a certain property size to have a well installed. Over here it's generally 5 acre's . There are a lot of grandfathered ones though.

    I would keep the gpm down. You still want to utilize house equipment when the system is running.

    Upsize your ML to reduce friction loss and velocity speeds. Design accordingly per hydrozone. Maximize the efficiency with a proper design . Just follow specs guidelines to the products you use.

    Right like mitchgo said... this will run at night so house will not need much if any demand...bit if I need it, I want.it. there r.no requirements here that you must have a well. I wanna keep velocity down and do like mitchgo said and increase mainline size... what size laterals you think I can run and valves? Its 150 ft wide and wanted to use hunter pgv valves and pgp rotors...remember the dimensions 150x400. That's probably 10 zones? Or so
