Main Water Line
My wife and I recently bought our retirement home, I am 9 yrs out from retiring from the military. It was built in 1963, is solid as a rock, small farm house on a lot of acreage. My question is that the family that lived there before us did rapid repair work at the cheapest cost possible with what they had hanging around the farm, ie; When the county ran water in the area, they disconnected the house from the well, evidence of this is still under every sink in the house, and they connected to the meter with black 1 1/2" plastic irrigation hose. It is pretty flexible, but I think the low water pressure in the house is caused by this. Is this correct, and what is a good replacement for it? I have been contemplating 1"PVC. The house is approximitely 75' from the meter. The rest of the plumbing inside the house is PEX, 1/2", I have re-run most of it and am very pleased with it's easy installation. It was there when we moved in, but the women who lived there was elderly, had the washer in a bathrrom closet, and had disconnected the stationary tub. I just did some reconnecting and moved the washer down stairs.
Thanks for any help I recieve
