Water to barn and cottage
Thank you for this forum! Wow... previous post have been especially educational.
I am planning to run water to a hobby barn and mini-cottage from my house which is on a well.
The barn is 150 feet, from the house, the cottage is an additional 200'. They are fairly level in elevation.
I am planning to use a large pipe 1"? PE. to reduce friction, per this forum.
I am concerned about having a break in the system which might pollute the cottage water since I plan a spur at the barn. Should I be concerned?
I was thinking about adding 2 pressure tanks to the system to address the friction loss.
My questions: Will pressure tanks do the job and how big should they be?
Should I add one in my house basement where the water leaves the house to keep the pressure up in the house or would it be better to have it in the barn. I thought I would put the second pressure tank at the cottage as to provide pressure there.
I would appreciate your thoughts and questions on my plans.
