In response to Re: Water pipe sizing chart

: Terry,
: Thanks for the water pipe sizing chart. Just to clarify this, the pipe coming through the foundation wall on my lot is 3/4". Where does the building supply and branches begin? And where does the meter and street service begin and end?

The street service and meter ends at the meter.

The building supply starts at the meter.

According to the chart, you would only run a one bath home off of the 3/4" line coming into the foundation.
Depending on the quanity and the type of plumbing fixtures in your home, a larger pipe is very likely. I would be thinking that the pipe from the meter would be 1.25" or 1.5"

If it were my home, it would have been 1.5"

In the Seattle area, there is no way that the inspector would have allowed 3/4"
