My general guide line for large nozzles (8") is that they need about 15-20 gallons per minute.

David,

I used a pump from Home Depot. Beckett model 1130 (1100ish). I can't remember exactly. It works for one nozzle.

Ebay is your friend if you are on a tight budget like me Very Happy

Here is a link to the pump that I have. 1200 GPH for under $50 is hard to beat and so far its working really well for me.
