Can you recommend a small pump for irrigation

I have a fairly large sized pond behind my house and I wanted to use the water for irrigation of the lawns so as to save on the water bills.

Can you guys recommend a pump for the job. IT should run on 110 volts.

Thanks,

Amit

Little Giant makes a good selection of pumps:

I use one of their magnetic drive pumps for my outdoor fish pond. It's about 20 years old and still runs great.

Any specific models

Can somebody recommend a specific model (inexpensive). All I would like to do is to run a sprinkler. I was planning on using garden hoses or similar for both suction and discharge.

Thanks,

Amit

You'll have to somehow figure how many gallons per minute, head pressure, ect you need. Distance from the pond to sprinkler, size of hose, all that stuff needs to be considered to make a perfect choice.
Or just buy one that looks plenty big.

Another consideration is a filter. We looked into connecting our wells to the sprinkler system here in the neighborhood. You need a container to hold some reserve or the pump output must exceed the sprinkler demand output.
Also consider some kind of filter or you will clog the fine openings in the sprinkler heads.

Yes, an intake filter, and a foot-valve too. Keeps water from flowing back when the pump is off, and you lose your prime. Unless you use a submersable pump, then it's not a big deal.
