What is the best way to connect from the water meter to the new water main line (compression.threaded,PVC coupling etc.)? For the water main pipeing i will be using 3/4" PVC schedule 40.
I have noticed water main replacements in houses near me where they run PVC up to the house then reduce down to 1/2" rigid copper pipeing to all fixtures ,and to the hot water heater hot and cold sides.
Is it advisable to run 3/4" pipeing throughout,or is it an overkill/causing more harm than good? meaning does the reduction from 3/4" to 1/2" reduce the water psi so it puts less stress on the supply valves and fixtures in the house?
Thanks to all replys!
