poly pipe


Is 160 psi rated pipe efficent to carry potable water from meter to residence, or is 200 psi rated pipe advisable? Distance is approx. 200 ft. Should of mentioned that existing water pressure in that area is 67 psi. Thanks for any advice.

You should check with the local utility to see what type of pipe is required. They should be able to advise you what schedule pipe is required, and the best type of material to use.

200 psi pipe is available..but as was mentioned check with water supplier for what they want.....if you only have 67 psi 160 would be plenty..with room to grow...ben sr
