To provide the house with water will help the water supply from the well. For the proper functioning of the device, it is necessary to act in accordance with SNiP in order to ensure sufficient water pressure. It is equally important to know what risks and nuances you will encounter during the work, and what materials will need to be acquired in order to connect a wet well with a house.

What you need to purchase before starting work

To lay water from the well, you need to buy:

  • various fittings - crimp and threaded;
  • check valve;
  • holders for pipes (rectangular or any other);
  • water supply station;
  • mixers, ball valve;
  • metal-plastic pipe.

The station is selected based on the depth of water rise and the removal of a country house from the well. Suppose, if you take a station with a value of 100, the maximum depth of water rise will be 10 m with a pipe length of 10 m. And a station with a value of 80 in this case will not work.

Preparatory phase of the approach

Commissioning of the system will be successful if you correctly select the tools and materials necessary for the work. To implement the installation of water supply you will need:

  • roulette;
  • hacksaw for metal;
  • shovel;
  • Rabitz;
  • edged board;
  • fine gravel, cement and sand.

The first stage of work to conduct water in the house

To use the well in the house for water supply, the first step is to determine where the water supply station will be located. The best option for installation - underground country house, located next to the main building. DIY station installed in this place:

  • will not be heard in the house
  • eliminates the likelihood of freezing water in the storage tank.

Do-it-yourself installation of the system can also go in the bathroom or in a room with a heating boiler. In any case, you will have to take into account where the space for the entry of pipes in the foundation of the house is left.

The subsequent stages of installing the water pipe yourself

After determining the place where the station for a country house and a wet well will be located, the next stage begins - digging a trench for water pipes according to SNiP.

Trenching is carried out in compliance with some features, for example, taking into account the depth of freezing of the soil. The best option for installing the "Water Well" system is with a soil freezing depth of 70 cm. In this case, the depth of the trench should be 1 m.

After trenching equipment according to SNiP, installation of a 32 mm pipe begins:

  1. It is required to bring one end of the pipe into the well, and then bend it and lower it so that at least 30 cm remains to the bottom of the well.
  2. Then the pipe is cut, and the input of its second end goes to where the station is, through an opening in the foundation in the underground structure.
  3. For optimal operation of the system, the pipe is insulated with foam rubber or mineral wool.
  4. The final stage is digging a trench.

Features of installation and connection of the station

The scheme of independent arrangement of the station assumes the presence of a hard surface. It is recommended to perform a concrete screed where the station will be located. Act according to SNiP:

  • A concrete solution is being prepared.
  • Formwork is mounted from the edged board.
  • At the bottom with your own hands, a netting net is placed and a 7-centimeter concrete layer is poured.
  • Then again, you should put the netting and fill the space to the upper level of the formwork with concrete mortar.

The next stage is the introduction of 100 mm bolts into the concrete with your own hands. At the same time, 3 cm of the length of the thread of the bolts should protrude onto the surface.

Upon completion of the work, the station system is put into place. To the concrete screed, the station is fixed on 3 mm rubber pads and nuts.

Water scheme from a well in a house

Do-it-yourself water supply flow chart for the well is prepared in advance. Detailing is quite complex and requires careful development.

The water supply connection scheme includes the following elements:

  • water consumers
  • filters and pumps
  • collectors and boilers.

Hand-made scheme should include the location of the presented elements and the direction of the pipeline through the rooms of a suburban building.

Detailing is performed according to SNiP in one of two ways:

  • collector connection
  • sequential water supply.

The latter option is considered optimal for suburban water supply for a couple of people. In other cases, the presented connection scheme is inefficient. Water supply works according to the following principle: water goes into the room through a pipeline, and a tee is mounted with each water intake point, allowing water to flow towards the consumer. Such a water supply from the well has one significant minus - when using several mixers, the pressure of the water supply in the latter will be low.

The second way to equip a water supply system for a country house is to connect to each water point separately directly from the collector. The fluid pressure in this embodiment will be equal. Since the location of the pumping station will still not be nearby, pressure losses cannot be ruled out, but they will be less than with sequential water supply.

Tips and tricks on how to conduct water, from professionals

The water supply system is laid taking into account some factors. All of them are registered in SNiP and affect the functionality of the system. We are talking about factors such as:

  • Metric distance from the well to the building horizontally. According to SNiP, the larger the distance, the more powerful the pumping unit is required. It is also important that 4 m of horizontal surface in this case equals 1 m of vertical.
  • Seasonality of water use. The do-it-yourself water scheme involves seasoning for work. This factor directly affects the location of the pipes. If the supply is carried out in the summer, the pipes can be supplied externally. If necessary, rectangular trenches dig in the winter, and pipes are insulated.
  • The number of water supply points and how to connect them. If it is not, carrying out the installation will not do anything good. The mismatch of characteristics causes difficulties with the simultaneous use of equipment, and water may not reach the second floor at all - there will not be enough power.
  • The water level in the well. According to SNiP, before you carry out the pipes yourself, you should calculate the distance from the soil surface to the water level in the well. If the water meter in the well shows less than 7 m, it is better to use a surface pump.

It is possible to provide water from a well if you install a pipeline and a pumping unit. However, for the correct functioning of the system, installation should be carried out in accordance with the rules and correctly calculated if there is enough pressure for the installation to work.
