I have a 1/2 horsepower motor runnng a smallish Myers pump for irrigation. It's under my deck, maybe 10 feet above a dammed creek. The areas I water range from there to maybe another 10 feet higher.

The water supply is always good, and the sprinkler works great...for about a minute, and then the pressure on the tank drops down and it gets so that the reciprocating sprinkler won't, well, reciprocate. I'm looking to replace either the motor or the pump or both, but am totally confused. What do you recommend?
