well house plumbing


Hello , could someone tell me the best pipe to run from the well house to the pressure tank under the house ? The pipe i have now " approx. 100' " is leaking and is buried. I'd like to replace it with a pipe with great longevity. Thank you for your time. -robert

i'd suggest type k copper with no buried joints to minimize any chance of leaks.

type k copper or 200lb poly, don't use any joints underground. Poly will be A LOT cheaper, it's what most people are using now, but good fittings can be 30-40 bucks apiece. ask an inspector in your area what's approved for use first

well house plumbing


Thanks for the replies everyone.i have a question that may have an easy answer but i don't know it. I have a [ water ace submersible well pump , 2 wire , 3/4 horse , 230 volts , 10gbm ]
[ a new utilitech pro tank , 25 gallon , factory precharge is 25 psi , ] , [ a new 30-50 psi pressure switch , which is adjustable ] and [ a new 75 lb pressure relief valve. ] my question is what is a good pressure to run the well system or what is my pump's start-up pressure.i'm thinking there needs to be harmony between the 4 parts ?? The well depth is 116 ft. , and the hose from the well house to the tank is 100 ft. Thank you again for being so helpful. Robert
