 Shop Water Supply
Author: cmillsdad (VA)

I am in the process of building a shop. I would like to add a water source such as a frost proof yard hydrant. I have a well and my shop is very close to the well casing. My pressure tank is located in my basement. There is no check valve located between the well casing and pressure tank. Can I tie in to the line going from the well casing to the pressure tank or is it necessary to run a line all the way from the house back to my shop? It seems unnecessary but I thought I would ask. Thanks for the help!

As long as there is no check valve at the pressure tank, just tee in at the well head, or in the underground pipe between the well and house.

Thanks for the help! As far as I can tell there is no check valve. Only at the pump. Thanks again!
