Addition to Driveway


We are adding an addition on to our paver drive way and our water main to the house runs right where we are going to add the addition. The water main is PVC and lies about 10 inches below where the pavers will lie. Should we re-route the water main?

Addition to Driveway


Water main only 10" deep, you must be in a warm climate??? At that depth, it could be affected by compaction from the construction and vehicles over time. In our area, you need a 6-10 base before you even get started with the pavers. Make it deeper or move it. But I doubt it is PVC, possibly a plastic type but not PVC.
