    If the weather cooperates we will begin work on this project. It is a large horse jumping arena. We will be looping the arena with 4" fed with 6" from a 40 hp submersible. There will be 6 "hydrants" that will have a 3" solenoid valve controlling it that they will connect the Nelson big gun sprinklers to that will be mounted on carts that they can move around.

    This is similar to what will be built.

    I don't understand the purpose. These carts need a hose attached? You need to wheel them out when needed?

    They needed not have any heads in the turf because they are a hazard to the horses. So they wanted to water from the edges, the only head that will come close to covering is the Nelson big guns. Originally they were going to be mounted on perminant posts but the fear is that if the wind is blowing a certain way when the show tents are set up we could send 175 gpm into the VIP cocktail tent. So they want to be able to move them. But other than the center head they will stay in place most of the year except when the show is on.

    Of course. A well is just a well. A sprinkler that can shoot a hundred-odd feet is... way cool. :)

    The heads will do a 315' diameter @ 100 psi using 175 gpm. The arena is 300' across so they will hav to wheel a cart to the middle.
