FIRST TIME POSTER.
I AM WANTING TO EXTEND A WATER LINE DIRECTLY FROM THE WELL HYDRANT IN MY YARD. THIS LINE WILL TRAVEL SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET.
ANY INFO ON INTIAL PIPE DIAMETERS AND STEP DOWN FORMULAS OVER LONG DISTANCES?
THE END WATER SOURCE IDEALLY SHOULD HAVE AVERAGE WATER VOLUME.
The size of piping depends on your current pressure, the distance you want to travel and the number and type of fixtures to be supplied. My 30 to 45 psi chart says a 3/4 inch line 200 feet long will supply 6 fixture units. A wall hydrant is 4 and a sink is two. A 1" line will supply 15 fixture units. If your well hydrant is not at the well then the total fixtures supplied by the well and their distances need to be taken into consideration.
