I would like to draw water from my creek for the purpose of watering lawn,garden,fruit trees, etc. The creek is at the lowest level of the property. The bank is about 6' high. I can set a pump in the creek or on the bank,whichever is better. The ground level at the creek stays level for about 30 yards then slopes upwards for 20 yards in distance and about 15' in elevation. From that point it slowly rises upwards for about 40 yards distance and about 15' to 20' in elevation. From that point the ground is fairly level for a distance of about 25 yards to our fruit trees. I can provide 120v or 240v power to the creek from my house. What I would like to find out is what size of pump and water line will I need to provide good water pressure in various locations all along the way from the creek to the fruit trees farthest away from the creek. I realize that I will only be able to use one location at a time. I have looked at utility pumps that would set in the creek with a 2" discharge line that I thought I could reduce down and I have seen pumps that would sit on the bank with a 2" suction line and 2" discharge line I just haven't seen one yet that tells me it will push water up 30 to 40 feet a distance of 350 or so feet. Maybe this can't be done with one pump I may need a reservoir to pump into and out of along the way. Thanks for any help.
