So go to do a bid for my sons teacher as the guy they initially had has not showed up for 3 months. I get there and they are showing me their system run off a garden hose attached to the main line, temporary fix whilst they get it plumbed in after some hardscaping. Any ways they show me every thing and that the plumber made it so that I can drill a 3/4' hole in the siding and attach right into the house plumbing. this is great no pull at all. any ways get under there and it is all 1/2" and they wanted 1". Hmm. The skinny. turf area 1200 sq ft hunter pgp 6 of them. drip roughly 400 plants. future plans of 5000 sqft of turf. I can pull a 3500 ft of 1" from the main water line or I can do 5' from the 1/2" from the house. More info. there will be a new subdivision in the next 2 years where they will relocate the water meter to within 100 feet of the house. (now 3500ft). My ideas where the system is already working off of the garden hose technique pretty well I figure I will go off of the 1/2" now and when the meter is relocated rerun a 1" line from there? Looking for input as all my experience is from just after the meter and not from 1/2" plumbing. pros and cons.
