I have a supply of industrial propane hose that has a 1 inch ID and is rated at 350 PSI... This is the kind of stuff the propane trucks carry to fill up residential propane tanks. Its a thick rubber (epdm?) hose with a nylon braid for reinforcement.

If I were to bury this stuff 4 feet into the ground in Michigan, would the ground collapse it?? If I stand on the hose (275lbs), it does flatten out a little but doesn't completely collapse. I'm wondering if I MUST use the poly sprinkler pipe or if I could get away with this stuff.

I want to use it to run a water line out to a cattle watering bucket 200 feet away..

Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
