Sizing water service...
Posted by Jahyen on June 08, 19100 at 20:11:28:
Can anyone tell me what the fixture unit allowance for a 250' developed length at 40psi would be with a 1" meter and 1.5" service and main distribution branch? I have 44 fixture units and am installing 1.5" pipe at the recommendation of the inspector, but a check with the utilities folks shows that the pressure at the main isn't so great so I only have a little over 40psi left at the top fixture in the house. Consulting the tables that I have (I don't have a copy of the UPC) I find that I don't see much information for 1x1.5 service.

If anyone out there has a UPC handy and can look this up for me I'd appreciate it!
