How to Get Water Supply to My Shop Building?


Should I run bigger PVC say 1.5" I know the inlet at meter will still be 1" but guess their would be less restriction in the long run to the back... you can get to big and hurt flow? Or no? In the end do I really need a flow reading.. if so how would I go about that?

At that distance (350 feet) from the main house, in the city, you could get a separate service (for sewer and electric too). Look into it.

If you have that much land... put in a separate well and septic.

Guess a well would be nice but seems like it usually cost around 5000$.

I think 1" would be sufficient. Instead of PVC I would advise the use of polyethylene tubing (series 160) pipe if available. You can buy it in coils and it is cheap. It has a thicker walls than the irrigation tubing described earlier and is certified for potable use.

It can also be installed by directional drill if you wanted.

Yes home depot will carry it, although it might have to be ordered. Can we post links in this forum?
