    I have had a small 1/4 horse well pump for watering my lawn for a couple of years. I am going to replace the garden hose that I have running off of the output from the pump with a PVC line.

    The suction end of the pump is has a 1" connection.

    The Pressure side has a 3/4.... Can I put an adaptor on the pressure side to bump it up to 1"? I am going to run the 1" up a small hill to a spigot and attach there.

    I am just running two sprinklers.
    Will that work.

    Any advice would help. :D

    You can! I wouldnt go any bigger. WHy not stick to 3/4?? The one inch wont make any difference based on what you are connecting it to ( 2 heads)
