    What type of hose would you run from a hose bib to a set of valves. The run would be short about 10' on top of concrete and will be under constant pressure. I know not the ideal way to do this but the only practical way in this situation.

    I would consider drilling a hole in the concrete and hydraulicing in a galv-y pipe rather than a hose.

    If you were really worried about it you could have a hydraulic hose made up

    Bring back some photos. There has to be a better way to manage things.

    If I had no other choice I would go with copper.

    Is this a property with a curbside water meter?

    The meter is a looong way from the building and area to be watered. This is a very small area that is being watered otherwise I would not consider doing it this way.

    Here is the pic. I know I'm probably going to hear it from some.
