I am connecting to the main water service with a 1 inch pvc line.The run is
about 300 feet from my soon to be installed meter to the house.The rise is
about 40 feet . Will a 1 inch feed be large enough. The system I am
connecting to is a private community well.Their line is 1 1/2 inch. I do not
know the pressure at my meter yet I am the lowest lot from the well. Thanks
for all input and suggestions.
Not enuf to go by, but I would expect a 1" branch from
only a 1.5" Main to have plenty of flow capacity
( all you're going to be able to get).
Whatever the pressure at the Main is, you will lose 20 PSI
static due to the rise.
If customers even higher up are satisfied, no reason you
I really have no idea, but that won't stop me from answering.
My well is about 30' below my house, and about 200' away. It connects to
the house with 3/4" copper. No problems, even after passing through two
So, I would expect 1" is fine.
