water weighs 8 pounds per gallon, so a little down-grade would give some pressure!---A guy we sold a field cultivator to had an acre on drip system hooked to a 10,000 gallon tank then used filter at bottom of outlet to the bigger feed hose.----he then pressurized the tank to 4 pounds and claimed that fed the system ok!---he also showed us an emitter cleaner that he used when a plant wasnt getting water!(he had small damp spots near the plants when the emitter was working)---I can see the idea working,---clean water would be the biggest hurdle as I see it! thanks; sonny
