Running waterline to pasture


Hello.

I am considering a job as a barn manager in NC. One of my first "major" projects will be to run water to a pasture. I am not sure how far it is from the water source to the pasture, so I was wondering if there is a formula for figuring pipe size to reduce the effects of distance on the water pressure. For example, if the run is 150 ft, use x size pipe, where if the run is 1500 ft, use y size pipe?

Not sure if this will help you, but it gives a formula for pressure and volume loss.
