I've got some land in South Texas where I need to setup some water troughs with float valves for wildlife. The distances from the water tap are about 500' and 1500'. I'm thinking of using 3/4" poly and just laying it on the ground but I don't have any experience with poly pipe at all so I don't know if this would be a good application for it. I don't really want to trench in PVC, or use PVC at all actually, I'd rather use something UV resistant that I can just lay down and let nature cover on it's own over time. I also want to do this as inexpensively, and with the least amount of labor possible. My biggest concern with poly pipe is rabbits and stuff chewing holes in it to get to the water. We have a well hole but there's no pump in it (locals stole it years ago) so we're going to be connecting this to city water and a hole in the pipe could get very expensive, especially since we sometimes go 6 - 8 weeks between visits. Will Poly work OK for this or should I be using something else?
