    trying to find info on how to properly connect an irrigation system to a well on a residential property. the well is the drinking water into the house. do i need to connect an pump start relay for the irrigaion as well as the one already their for the house water?

    if it is drinking water, it already has a presure valve. you do not need to add a relay.

    the challenge is building the system such that each zone can use as much water as the pump can put out.

    cycling the well kills the pump. so, do your homework on this one.
    also, plan to put a filter in it. read my thread "customer lied to me" ......
