    Default Outdoor water supply lines and drain

    I'm planning to run water supply lines(hot/cold) from the main house to a pool house. The total distance is about 100'. At this point, my plan is to tap into the 3/4" copper in the main house and run 3/4" CPVC to supply the outdoor sink and shower at the pool house. Also considering buried PEX.

    For grey water sink drain, I'm hoping that I can install a simple dry well and not drain all the way back to the house septic tank.

    Comments appreciated.

    It wouldn't make sense to run hot water from the house to the pool area 100 feet away. It would be a waste of money and materials for the piping only to have the water cool off before it gets there. To me I would run one cold water line and have a small water heater at the pool area.
    As for what type of piping , how deep and if you can simply drain the grey water into a dry well would depend on your region and the local codes.

    thanks for your comments.

    I have a propane source near the fixtures I want to supply, so I suppose I could install a tankless heater. I don't think I have enough power from the pool sub panel for an electric tankless heater. I'll look into it further.
