A client has water rights to a lake approximately 1800 feet from where the desired intake is for the irrigation system. He desires to run a 6" pipe from the lake to the intake of the irrigation system. He's planning on irrigating between 2-5 acres of lawn and native vegetation. The lake location has a pump currently and has power to the pump. The only concern that I have is that the irrigation system will need to command the pump on and off. Has anyone tried commanding a pump that is nearly 1/2 mile away from the irrigation system? What are the concerns of doing so. I suppose a long wire can be run but it seems like a long ways.
