What type of pipe should I use for my hookup?

Posted by:

This is very important, especially for those who have curb stops and meter assemblies inside the residence. Attached is an illustration of both the curb stop and meter pit assembly hookups. You may continue with schedule 40 pipe for the meter pit assembly hookup. The curb stop hookup is dependent upon the pressure rating of pipe at your location. This is very important because the high pressures in the system at some locations are carried into your residence. Pipe failure could cause your basement to fill with water very rapidly. Should you have any questions concerning your piping, please contact the Southwest Water Authority office at 701-225-0241 or toll free at 888-425-0241. Mainline piping pressures will vary depending upon location.
