underground water line to detached garage


Hey guys

i live in Vancouver BC

I'm running an underground water line from my house to my detached garage. Its about a 30 foot run.

I was wondering what you guys thought would be the best pipe for me to use and wether I should sleeve it or not? If so, what should I sleeve it in?

right now i'm leaning towards using PEX and sleeving it in some 'BIG O' drainage pipe.

Would love to get your guys' opinion

thanks in advance

Pex will be fine but it's going to need to be bured below the frost line.
Only place it needs to be sleeved is where it runs through concrete.

Agreed, and make sure you bed the line with lots of sand.
