Okay, I have a problem... so what else is new to those visiting this site?
I own a mobile home, single wide 14 x 45 with a smallish amount of lawn around an awkwardly shaped lot. My lot kinda looks like a pineapple piece. It is 20 feet in the front, and expands to about 55 feet in the back. I am required by park rules to water the lawn and keep it looking good... the downside, I cannot put in an auto system that is below ground. The owners are worried about old installed gas lines, power lines, drain lines, etc. I am going to say this in advance, I am a lazy home owner, sort of, but really do not have the time to go out and water the lawn every day or two as needed.
My solution... install a copper pipe based system that is attached to the roof eaves of the mobile home that would mimic an in-ground system. My problem... actually doing this.
I live in Utah, and it gets notoriously cold. I am not sure of what material to use for the installation. Should I use PVC, CPVC, PEX, or copper. The temperatures can reach 100+ degrees in the summer and below zero during the winter for extended periods of time.
I was thinking of putting up a system using copper tubing, 1/2", around the eaves of the mobile home, supplied with a manifold and back flow valve system, and simply putting the whole thing about 9 feet in the air. I would supply the manifold with a supply line from water source, much like the trailers main supply, and putting in a drain and disconnect for winter months.
My concern is the cold during the winter, and the exposure the whole year.
What are your thoughts for this installation? Any suggestions? Problem areas? Things I should be concerned with?
Thanks in advance,
