My water company is requiring me to run a separate water line from the street for a home sprinkler system. I can't use my existing home water line. They say the connection charge is $2,000, plus I have to pay for a separate meter and pay a separate water bill (base charges) even if no water is used. The total cost is going to be over $3,000 up from plus the ongoing water bills.
I am considering a water tank and pump as an alternative. What size water tank and pump would be required for a 2,000 square foot house? What would this cost? Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
