    You can forget about 11 sprinklers on a half inch supply.
    Should just about manage three.

    I assume half inch is what you have. Just not enough flow rate unless you fit a big booster pump.
    I needed a 150w pump to supply 3 heads, so I reckon you will need a 600w pump.

    I think it is 11 it might be less, but how much does a 600w pump cost ?

    Before you think about cost tell us how big your water supply pipe is.
    Half inch supply won't deliver enough for 11 heads
