    1 acre in rotors
    26 heads are 30 ft higher than the pump.
    9 rotors per zone

    Will this pump work or is it too much power?
    Dayton 2hp-3ph 230v,9.6a

    1.5" main or 1.25?

    3 Phase pump? Need a link to what you're looking at.

    the only above-ground pump that is likely to fit your requirements is the Sta-Rite/Berkeley SSHM-2

    You need 3 phase in Canada? Sized about right but not sure about quality.

    i thought about the GT20 goulds irrigator.

    i want some good pressure and flow on this job.
    3 phase in Canada, yeah whynot. haha idk. I dont do many lake jobs.
    it been such a dry year here

    That Berkley 2hp looks really nice tho. specs look similar

    how much three-phase wiring do you do - by no means should this be your first time
