I water and fertilize out of a 250 gallon tote. I pump the water out of the tote and run it through a sprinkler system. What is a good pump that you guys use? Every one I have bought has broken down or has not been powerful enough. I am running 2 overhead sprinklers.

i have a Goulds J5S jet pump bought from a cousin maybe 4 years ago - i noticed this past year alone that if not enough sprinklers are running (2+) the pressure drops down over about 5 minutes to zero - this might make sense, since perhaps the term 'JET' means just that, lol; they can be bought very cheaply and easily found, like mine and i LOVE used stuff that works; once the flow is allowed to do so, it really rocks @ 50-60 PSI! also, the cutout pressure setting needs to be adjusted to beyond the max. pressure of the pump, or else it'll turn off/on/off/on, if without a pressurized tank---eg
