Hiya I'm a trainee grower in a market garden - we've got about 1.5 acres with 2 polytunnels. Anyway, we have no mains water only water from a well that is pumped up to a 1000l tank and fed into drip feeds that supply the polytunnels. Next year I want to collect the water from the tunnels and store them in IBCs. The question is am I limited to drip feeds or is there some technology out there that could pressurize the water so I could get overhead sprinklers in the tunnels?

Thanks in advance

There are pump sprayers available where you pressurize with a hand air pump. I should think you could fit something of hat sort on an IBC. Depending on exactly what fittings the IBC came with, it might even be possible to just screw on one of the pump units from the commercial sprayer.
