It is after the pump. We have 4 of them on each line, and we run 6 lines.

I Understand Now I think: It's a Sprinkler System

I was thinking it was more of a flooding system with no pressure, but now I understand better that it is a sprinkler system with some pressure.  Is the bleeder before or after the pump?

It is hard to run from the sprinkler heads to the pump all the time, or should I say from the TV to the pump, if you are not watching you can run the well dry. If the water level runs short you can get air in the lines and this causes havoc on the pump, sprinkler heads (cheap plastic heads) and PVC lines that we currently get in Nicaragua. I am thinking of getting some good RainBirds and increasing the distance from 3 meters to 15 meters but then again, like I said I want the farm to be self-sufficient and currently they can not afford the cost.

looks like a good system

but why did you need to get air out of the lines?
