|In response to Re: Garden water spigot where well is bored?|
: The check valve would be between the pump and the tank and your hose faucet would have to be connected after the check valve, regardless of where the actual faucet is located.

: : : : : You can put a yard hydrant in. Do you live somewhere that it freezes?
: : : : :Live where it barely freezes 30 degrees a few times a year but warms during the day always- people don't wrap pipes here as a rule but I could put some of insulating pipewrap on the water spigot and pipe. Is that the same as a hydrant? Thanks , Lena PS - love your "handle"
: : : I just don't trust Mother Nature. Next winter you could have a record cold snap. Why not put a stop and waste valve where you tap into the mainline. The mainline will be deep enough to protect from freezing, and the hose will not be needed during the winter. I'm not sure how much protection wrapping a pipe would give.
: : Thanks Gary, I will look that one up too. Hubby says we need a bunch of stuff for tank setup. He is puzzling over where to put a "checkvalve" now that I am getting a faucet of some kind at the wellsite. Or if to put one at all. He said the pump has one built in.I think he is leaning toward putting one in and I quote "after the tank" but he needs some help on that I think.
If you install a yard hydrant, you will not need an inground stop and waste. The yard hydrant is buried and hooks into the main. It actually shuts off and drain in the ground. You just need to remove the hose in freezing weather so it can drain.
