Pipe Material and Diameter Question
Posted by Mike Ross on February 16, 2004 at 12:15:39:
I have a water well on my property. I need to run pipe from my well to my homesite. It is about 1700 feet - about a 10 foot incline. The well has a 50 gallon pressure tank and puts out about 60 psi. The well has a 1 1/2 external pipe fitting. Three questions please:

1. What size pipe should I run to my home?
2. What is the least expensive and acceptable pipe material I should use?
3. Would I be better off using skinny pipe with a pressure booster near my home site?

Thanks a lot.
