    l'm designing a micro system for a customer of mine they have a large family of 7.there well produces 1 gpm about 1400 gallons a day. they have a 1200 g holding tank for the house .they have three 16 x16 flower bed & gardens and 30 hanging baskets.plus 2 lawns 30 x30 that are drying out they also have an extra water container 1000g that they have been using for out side watering ,they have been getting the water trucked in .l'v got them at using 700g a day for inside of house which leave 700 extra.here's my ideal do all all flower beds, gardens,baskets on micro zones from house water .my first worry is the house pressure,it's any where from 10psi to 30psi will valves, emitters and drip line work.l've got the micro system using 400g every 2 days if l only water every second day ,which leaves me 600 g extra every 2nd day to move to 1000g out side water container which has a pump that produces40psi 7gpm and water lawns every 2nd or 3rd day with mp's,,thanks ralph
