better if running water planning will be performed at the stage of drafting the suburban area and the house.A full project includes a series of drawings and documents, including:

  • phased plan performance;
  • scheme placement of pipes and the main elements of the water distribution system;
  • estimates, etc.

Selecting a source of water supply

During the design suburban water supply system to select the best source of water.Check out the options available and choose the most suitable for your case.

centralized water supply

Centralized water supply

centralized water supply

simplest and most convenient option.It is important that the pressure in the system was sufficient to deliver water to the building.Otherwise, the need to buy an additional pump or also consider other methods of water supply.

water in the building will be served by a system of pipes and fittings.

In this case, for the installation of running water is usually no need to buy any additional devices - simply need to dig a trench, lay the elements of water and crashing into the central highway.

method is suitable for sites with the depth of the underground aquifer of not less than 8-10 m

mine for well settling 2-3 people effort -. Alone for too long and difficult.

Digging wells

digging wells

The main advantage of the described embodiment is to limit system simplicity - to care for and repair it will be on their own.The content of such wells in the normal state requires no tangible costs.

The main drawback is strictly limited water supply.Not every individual well be able to give as much water as is necessary to meet all the needs of the family.

Before you give preference to this option, you calculate the necessary amount of water and set how much water will be able to give a well.

Construction of water supply system on the basis of the mine pit requires a surface pump.The equipment is relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain.

Summer and winter water pipes

Previously, you most likely have heard such definitions as a summer and winter water systems.Learn the basic properties of these options, it is possible that even the simplest version of the summer will be able to meet your requests.Otherwise, you can go directly to the study of the following sections of the manual dealing with the full arrangement of plumbing.

Summer version

Summer water supply in the country

Features such aqueduct clear from its name - operation of such a system is possible only in the warm season.There are fixed and collapsible system modifications.

collapsible summer water has a very simple structure: it is enough to connect the hoses to the appropriate parameters for the pump and lay them on the soil surface so that they do not impede the normal movement on the dacha.

giving everything to fit the system of silicone and rubber hoses.The connection is made using special adapters.Also available in specialty stores more modern items for the connection of hoses - tabs.One side is a latch equipped with a spring-loaded connector, and on the second there is "ruff."With the help of these latches hoses are connected quickly, reliably and simply.

Most often such a collapsible system is used for irrigation.To organize on its basis a full water supply for domestic use decisions meaningless.

Wiring pipes for summer water

pipework for summer water

Laying the stationary summer water runs underground.Flexible hoses are not suitable for the arrangement of such a system.The best option - a pipe made of plastic.

Pipes stationary seasonal water pipe laid on the depth of one meter.After the season, the water from the pipes need to deflate, otherwise with the arrival of cold weather, it freezes and spoil the pipeline.

view of this, the pipe must be laid with a slope towards the drain valve.Directly valve is mounted far away from the water source.

Winter version

This water can be used throughout the year.

giving everything to fit the pipe system made of polyethylene and polypropylene.The first sold at a lower price and installed without special tools.The latter are more expensive and require the use of a soldering iron pipe during installation.However, as a result of additional parts for installation of pipes on the basis of polyethylene you spend more money than on additional products used in the installation of polypropylene pipes.

Sewerage own hands make water?

recommend that you familiarize yourself with the step by step installation of sewerage technology in the country - a reference to the article.

Also read about drilling our own hands.

And do not forget to see the article about how to select a pump for the well, link here.

Water pipes are laid with a slight slope towards the water source.The pipeline must pass on the 200-250 mm below the frost line.

The slope of the pipes

Slope pipes

There is also an option with the laying of pipes at a depth of 300 mm.In this case, it is sure to perform additional insulation of the pipeline.With the functions of insulation copes polyethylene foam.There are special products of cylindrical shape.It is enough simply to put a CYLINDRICAL polypropylene pipe and as a result the product is well protected from the cold and other adverse effects.

The additional insulation is needed not only to pipe water pipe winter, but also a source of water.

Surface pumping equipment if used is equipped with a caisson.Caisson is a pit with additional insulation, equipped next to a water source, equipped with a pump.



Installation of automatic pumping stations can only be carried out in a room temperature that does not drop to negative performance even in the most severe frosts.

will now be considered by the full order of arrangement of the aqueduct, which can be used at any time of the year.

Wiring pipes , boiler and expansion tank

layout of pipes, boiler and an expansion tank


Start by making the system design.First of all, decide on the equipment.Check the location of the water intake points, calculate the required number of fittings, select the optimum material of manufacture and the type of water pipes.

Plastic tubes are most often used.It is durable and reliable products to fully cope with all the tasks incumbent upon them.When the pipes of plastic does not rust, which allows them to sew up the wall, unlike metal counterparts.

Make a detailed scheme of the future pipeline.In the drawing, select all sizes.So you can calculate the optimal footage and determine the right amount of accessories.This hardware is recommended to buy with 10-15 percent margin.

Also, you must decide whether you will be to choose and buy all the necessary equipment, or immediately buy the finished water intake station.At this point refer to their personal preferences.

Installation components plumbing

first step

Dig a trench from the water source to the point of entry of the pipe into the building.

second step

Install pump.deep type of equipment is lowered into the water source.Surface pumps are mounted as close to the well or the well.The pump is performed in a heated room or in the caisson.
