We have a 1.5" water main line coming into our house (inside the house piping is 3/4" or less). We are on a small private water district and the administrator of the well district wants to put in a 3/4 inch meter by cutting into the 1.5" main line. Is that going to affect the pressure and the water flow into the house? What are the negative implications of doing this? The total distance from the pump house to the house is over 1500 ft long.
Thanks all for the great feedback. Very helpful. Appreciate it. Confirms my stance that the meter should be of equivalent size.
They were originally talking about putting the meter at the entrance to our property which is about 500 yards away. We discovered there are lot of utilities including gas lines in that area. Now they are proposing to install the meter where the pump and water tank is located (over 1500' away). It is community well with about 15 or so houses connected to the well. Ours is the longest from the pump house.
