Hello all. Doing new construction as a DIY. The house on this project is about 600feet from city gas and water services at the street. Gonna do the trench work and lay the lines myself to save a little cash the leave the rest up to the pros.
House is a 4BR 2.5BATH.

Going to use PEX for water. Suggestions on type a/b/c and diameter??

Any gas line recommendations? PE (HDPE)…or other? Size? Will have gas stove, furnace, and water heater. Would like continuous run but hard to find material over 500ft.

Any thoughts or advice appreciated.

Use a craftsman water hose for the water. Lifetime warranty on the hose. Work smarter not harder. Just bury it as you would steel pipe.

For the gas you need Thin wall pvc sleeved with galvanized chain link fence railing. Be sure to install gas cleanouts every 80’.

Now go back and read that this is a professionals only forum then Sign off and move along.

Does the village/town/city/state/authority-having-jurisdiction know you're doing unlicensed work?

What makes you think the gas company won't want proof the line was installed by a proffesional before they connect to it?
