Well, what did you expect? If I ask you, "How big is a fish?" how are you going to answer?

What size and horsepower rating is this pump you propose using? How big a hose are you going to use between the tank and the pump and the pump and the sprinkler? What is the gallons per minute rating of the sprinkler and also the pump? What is the maximum discharge pressure of the pump? Is it a positive displacement or a dynamic (centrifugal) pump? Will you set this up and then walk away or will you be in constant attendance while the watering is occurring?
