Well water supply line and hydrants.
With a deep well providing the water supply, do all of the outdoor water hydrants (aproximately #4 total) need to be have the supply feed after the pressure tank?
Also in a new installation what is the recommended well water supply feed line location. Below the basement footer and wall or through the basement wall? The recent new construction installations I have observed the feed line is cooper wraped in black foam entering through the basement slab into the mechanical room.
Thanks for any help.
I have one hydrant connected to the line from my well to the pressure tank. It's less than 18" from the well casing. Water to my shop is piped from the same spot. In both cases, pressure is provided by the tank, which is 50 feet away under the house.
Water doesn't flow through the tank. Unless there is a check valve on the inlet to the water is taken off.
"Below the basement footer and wall or through the basement wall? "
Maybe if you are sub-artic Alaska then going under the footer makes sense.
But around her if you have a basement then trying to go under would make the pipe very, very deep and hard to repair if needed.
We would run the pipe about 30" deep and right into the side of the wall.
A-holes. Hey every group has to have one. And I have been elected to be the one. I should make that my tagline.
