How can I secure a ~3ft 1" white PVC pipe riser from getting snapped off?
Riser presently is 6ft up and capped. I plan to add right angle elbow, valve, and spout (standard lawn house threaded).
Gory Details... 18" below ground riser connects 90 degree elbow that runs 1" white PVC pipe through 18" deep buried trench 75ft to pressurized (60psi) well water supply.
I've thought of a couple of rebar stakes on either side of riser, but directly below riser, 18" down, a gray 3/4" electrical 110vac conduit also runs along same trench, parallel with and touching the 1" water PVC.
Gray elec conduit runs a few feet past water riser and elbows upward to an outlet box, also for my wife's beloved chickens.
I installed trench with 1" white PVC pipe for bringing pressurized well water near to chicken coop.
I've thought of a wooden stake about a foot on either side of water riser. But chickens will jump on them and crap.
