Water supply line
Sorry in advance for the long post, Im going to try to provide all the details.
Today, my water supply line got punctured on my side of the meter. Dug it up and its a black plastic pipe(forgive me, not sure what type, but if you know, please tell me) I.D is only 1/2 inch. I thought this is quite small for a supply line. My house was built in 1996. Im 30 miles east of Atlanta, GA.
As a temporary fix, I had to use two sharkbite couplings, and a small length of PVC pipe. The sharkbite has a very slow drip, about on drop every 45 seconds. Im not comfortable with the sharkbite connectors as a permanent fix, so I want to just replace the whole line.
Now, my hose is a 6 bedroom, 3 bath house on a slab, no basement. The water shutoff valve is located in the downstairs furnace room right below the water pressure reducer. Then the copper pipe goes into the slab. This is also on the back side of the house, and of course, the water meter is at the front.
So, where would the likely place to find where this copper pipe meets the plastic water supply line?
I want to make sure this project is done right. I dont want to come back and revisit this again in the near future :D I know that the current line runs over my septic drainfield ( this is how my septic guy punctured my line today while probing my drainfield). My drainfield is 36" deep, so I think I can go above it as it sits now. My gas line is on the the other side of the property, and i will still have utilities marked. Power, phone, and cable are all overhead. Im ready to do this asap so I can start the my drainfield project that is more important.
