Default sprinkler pump question

I have a one hp Goulds sprinkler pump. Can I hook it up to a pressure switch, without a bladder, so it will turn on as a sprinkler valve or a faucet valve opens? I want to use it for sprinklers and other outside pre softener faucets at the same time.

I think you need at least a small tank with air in it or it will go crazy turning on and off.

Thanks for the advice. I was thinking that might be the case.

I was also having the problem in my sprinkler system. It is difficult to repair sprinklers. I tried to fix it, but it was not working. So I called the professional to fix the problem. And it is working properly now.

When you say sprinkler pump do you mean a jet or a centrifugal? The jet works fine with a pressure switch. The centrifugal on the other hand does not.
