Need Price Opinions for Running Main Plumping Line 420ft


Hello everyone!

I am working on some numbers for us moving out to our 7acre property in central Texas. I am hoping to get your opinions on some of these costs...


How much to run plumping? And what kind of pipe should I use?

420ft of pipe? Or should I go straight from the meter to my home site...which would be 300ft of pipe?

Here are images showing the route options I might take for plumping...






Also...

How much to run electric?

I will need to run electric from the box to house is about 150ft. I have a good friend that is an electrician that wants to help! Yay!!



Thank you for your thoughts!! Just hoping to get rough numbers so my wife and I can begin planning a move in the fall.

The best way to get an estimate in your area is to call some plumbers and get estimates. I live in NY so any number I would throw out would not do you any good. What type of plumbing, Water, gas, Sewer???

I agree, draw up a plan with dimensions and send it out to bid to a few contractor's in your area. You'll get a much more accurate quote that way.

Ayuh,.... Combine all of the earth work into yer bids proposals,...

Yer gonna have somebody dig a foundation hole, or level a slab pad,...
Have them price in the ditch diggin' for the lines,...
Yer Bud can throw the wire in the hole, 'n the site contractor will back-fill it,...
Ditto the water line,....

'round here, HDP(sp) pipe is used, like pex, but heavier stuff,...
1 piece from the meter to the house connection,....
Straight line is cheaper, so long as ya don't have to go around something,...
