    I want to add 6 new spickets to various venues around the yard. I have one outdoor spicket in the middle but need to run additional spickets 80 to 120 feet in various directions. I have 3/4" PVC. My question is what best configuration to maintain sufficient water pressure.
    Thank You

    To avoid further pressure loss, use 1" pipe on all the extensions. If the existing spigot is already a long way from the main water line, then if it is not on a 1" line, you will have loss as the water travels that distance.
