Remodel & Install of New Tank Location w/ Sediment Filtration
New to the forum.
I'm no expert on the matter but I have a situation I'd like to share with you guys who know more than most...
Our old Indiana home has a defective 26 gallon bladder tank which was installed in the crawl space some 30 feet from the the well with what looks like 1.5" or 1.25" PVC. (From the tank it's reduced to 3/4" copper through out the home.)
I have purchased a new replacement 86 gallon tank and am locating it an additional 60' farther using 1.25" sch.80 PVC so this new tank will be located in the mechanical room in the basement. This new run of pipe needs to be strapped to the ceiling joists of the basement.
Are there any requirements or ideas regarding running and strapping this pipe this way ?
The well circuit is 20A. 220V. submersible pump I'm guessing it's a 40' well again guessing the pump/ motor maybe good for 10-15 gpm. max.
Also purchased a "big blue" filter housing that fits 4.5"x 20" cartridges. (I chose the 30 micron pleated type).
The total length of 1.25 " PVC pipe from the well head to the new tank location is maybe 90'.
Could someone tell me if I have all the following components plumbed in the correct order ..?
(from well casing) ---> 90' 1.25" PVC ---> Tank Manifold ---> 1" reducer nipple ---> 1" ball valve---> Pressure Regulator ---> Filter housing ---> 1" ball valve ---> 3/4" reducer bushing ---> to existing 3/4" copper plumbing through out home.
Does the above sound about right ? am I forgetting something ?
I appreciate your input guys, Thanks.
Indiana UPC base document for State code
confused about basement PVC plumbing code
Being an electrician by trade I wanted post here to find out about running PVC in my basement was up to plumbing code. Thank you for your response.
What I don't understand is why my neighbor has PVC inside his residence's pantry where his tank is located ? which by the way, was done by a plumbing contractor a couple months ago. (however what I see in electrical violations in the state of Indiana doesn't surprise me one bit, this house is no exception either )
I also don't understand why code says I can't run 1.25" sch. 80 PVC between the well and tank in the basement but it's ok for it to be in the crawl space ? it's not even buried but lying on top of the ground in the crawl (some 30' of it).
I see CPCV , pek pipe used on other jobs out there.
Since my situation is only for a cold run to the well tank, why does plumbing code not allow PVC inside my basement used only for this type of run ?
I was planning to strap this sch. 80 across the basement ceiling to the new tank location.
A floor drain is present in the utility room near the new tank location.
If code claims because of a freezing issue , I would think the crawl space would be colder than the basement where the furnace and ducts are located ?
