Moving a hose faucet


Hey everyone. I am renting a house and want to "temporarily" move an outdoor faucet. I live in Miami so I don't have to worry about the line freezing.

I wanted to some how attach the faucet in the back of the house to pvc and run it to the other side of the house and have my new faucet over there. I don't know what sizes of pipe to use and I also don't know if this is recommended or not. I've already had a hose break from the constant pressure after a few months and I wanted to make sure it would last for at least 3 years.

˝ pvc will be fine, if exposed to the sun you’ll need to paint it, ultraviolet light kills pvc, just put a shut off at the beginning of that new line run.

is there anything flexible that can do this? I've been seeing some stuff about "funny pipe."

You can run it in pex, but it too is susceptible to UV. Use adapter fittings for material transitions. Run 3/4 or 1/2" line secure pex @ 32" intervals. Plastic pie @ 6ft intervals.

only reason I would want it flexible is to run it behind the 4x4's along a fence and the fence is very crooked.

Then I would suggest pvc or poly pipe- similar to funny pipe but better
