> The water goes in from the frost-free at house pressure which on my
water association is fairly low.  Initially yes there were problems with
irregularities in the runs, these were solved by placing a "regulator"
on the main input hose.  (simple devise about $10, available at garden
places)  I also now limit the runs to 150-200 feet.
