In response to Re: Sizing water service at 250 feet and 40 PSI...

: 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!

: thanks!

UPC 30-45 PSI at 250 feet with 1" meter
1-1/2" pipe, 43 fixture units
2" pipe, 82 fixture units
