Hi, I am contemplating attaching a rain water diverter to my downpipes to catch the excess runoff and use it on the lawn and garden. Can anyone advise me if it possible to hook a lawn sprinkler up to the diverter via a length of garden hose and generate enough pressure to run the sprinkler? I estimate the length from the diverter to the sprinkler to be about 10 metres and the fall to be about 2metres. Thanks for your help.
BB. 2M of head will give you a dribble out of a simple spray head when it is raining. Normal practice is to divert to a tank & pump from the tank when the garden needs watering. Sort of like double entry accounting, not done right in the first place will give a wrongful outcome. Bob
