redirect well water


we want to add a sunroom but the water pipe to the house from the existing well will be in the way. Is it possible to change direction of the pipe at the pitless adaptor or attach a new pitless adapter to direct the pipe to come into the basement further away? any restriction on length of pipe run?

What size is the line that is in use right now?
What size pump is in the well right now?
If you add more feet of run from the well to the house that will add to the head of the pump and if it was sized based on feet from pump to pitless and then to house and to the high point in the house, adding more to the run from well to house might mean a different pump.

redirect well water


its about 15 ft from the house. Dont know anything about the pump but its a 3 wire and im guessing about 200ft deep. we just moved there in the summer. Would it be possible to run it to the garage which is 5 ft away at most?. We live in midwest and frost line is 30 inches. The garage hasnt got basement under it but wouldnt be too difficult to run the plumbing to the rest of the plumbing in the house. could the pressure tank stay where it was ( would that be preferable given humid summers)
otherwise im guessing we would need to run it about 25-35 feet further away to enter into the basement out of the way of the sunroom. Garage would be less trenching and has room but i dont know if its allowed.
