    I'm running 4/0, 4/0, 2/0 Al plus #6 Cu about 220' from main to sub-panel on a metal building. The cable will be buried.

    We have had problems with our residential well and are going to tap into the city supply instead. We have had a couple quotes for the hook-up. Contractor A came in around $3,000 and he quoted running a 3/4" K copper supply line Contractor B came in at about half of that and will be using...
