It takes 27,000 gallons to put one inch of water on one acre. You dang well better check and see if you have that much water supply. A little creek with a few potholes won't do it.
I have a well that supplies my pond and pump out of my pond to the "Reel".

My pump works on the pto of my tractor. John Deere.......not Honda.
Hope I was some help!

The creek runs strong enough to irrigate ,with these small systems,thats what it really boils down to is,GPM if you were gonna try to put 27000 gals. on afield in one minute I agree you better have a deeeeeeeeeeeeppppppp hole but spread this out to say 60 GPM devided into 27000 and it goes back to flow ,which I cant measure as some of the springs are under water.................good luck
