We live in central Ohio. I just built a barn. It is located about 300 feet from the house.
I’d like to run a water line to the barn from the house. The idea is to drill a hole through the concrete wall in our basement (4 feet below the surface) and run the water pipe through the hole. I would then rent a trencher and dig a 4 foot deep trench to the barn. Because of the distance, I will be running plastic water pipe. The black plastic stuff.
I really hate drilling a hole through the foundation. I’m worried about water leaking in to our basement.
What’s the best way to do it? I did some google searching, and did not find a detailed and concise “how to” tutorial on how to do it. All I found were some message boards where people talked about using a PVC liner, hydraulic cement, expandable foam, etc. I guess I’m just looking for more detail on exactly how to do it.
