My husband and I recently purchased a small mobile home park in Tallahassee, Florida. The majority of the homes are small singlewides with 1 or 2 bathrooms. The road is 700 feet long with 8 homes evenly spaced on either side, all of them on septic. Right now there is 1 residential water meter (5/8") feeding a 1" water line running through out the park. Needless to say, the tenants have virtually no water pressure. My husband and I want to put in new water lines on both sides of the road, each servicing 8 houses. We need help determining the proper tap/meter size and pipe size for our new water mains. We are leaning toward 1.5" taps/meters feeding into 2" PVC pipes running down the road and feeding into each home's 1" piping. I have many questions, but my main one is about the water pressure differences between the first home and the last on each run. The first homes are only 30-40' from the main road where the meters would be. Then each home is spaced out approximately 90' with the furthest ones being roughly 700' away from the meters. Is a 1.5" meter sufficient? Is a 2" private water main sufficient? Is having that large of a meter/main going to cause issues for the first few homes on the line having too much pressure? Should the diameter of the private water main feeding all 8 homes remain constant, or change as it gets further down the road? I welcome your suggestions and expertise!
