My water meter is 5/8's. It is connected to what looks like a 3/4 inch yoke. The bottom of the yoke is currently connected to 3/4 inch copper pipe to my house. I am in the process of replacing the 3/4 copper pipe to my house with 1 inch Pex. I have the 5/8 inch fip to 3/4 mip brass fitting which would work on the connection from the meter to the yoke but am unclear if this will work on the fitting on the bottom of the yoke.

Also in this process I uncovered the pipe that goes from the meter to the tap. It looks like good old PVC. Is that standard? Should I be concerned with cracking this pipe while working on the meter. I think this pipe has been there for 50 years? Thats how old my house is.

Any help would be appreciated.

Whatever 1" PEX adapter x ______ if you have FIP adapter, then a brass 1" x 3/4" bushing screwed on to the 3/4" brass meter adapter.
All meter union adapters usually end in 3/4" male, whether straight or riser yoke.
As to breaking the other utility side connection, that's what we get paid the big bucks to risk.
Careful excavation is paramount.

I should have been more specific. I have a 5/8ths to 3/4 adapter like the picture below. Sold as a water meter connector.

I was asking if this adapter could be used on the yolk fitting circled below. This would allow me to connect 3/4 to the 1 inch pex fitting. Breplum mentions these threads are typically 3/4. Would I need 3/4 FIP to connect?

Thanks again for the assist.

The PEX in the pic is what I will be connecting to the house. I found the PVC as I dug down below the meter a foot or so. I was surprised to see PVC. I thought maybe it should be polypipe or pex or something more flexible. I have seen old PVC shatter. I am sure its at least schedule 40. Maybe I am just being super critical.
