Maximum Fixtures for a given water service
Posted by Doug Rosenbaum on February 10, 2004 at 13:34:43:
I am thinking about putting a bathroom in my basement. After calling the water department, it seems that I have a 5/8" tap and a 1" service. There is about a 30' run from the sidewalk to the meter, and the futhest fixture would be 30' from that. What is the max fixture units I can have? Find lots of charts with 3/4 or 1", but I can't find anywhere where the 5/8" is mentioned. If I need a new service, it will definately put a hold on the new bath. Any idea how much the new service would cost?
Thanks.
