      I’m running a water line from the basement to an outbuilding. Code in my town has any water line at 42″ below grade. How do I route the water line through my foundation so that it doesn’t leak?
      Thanks in advance

      Dunno how you folks do it over there cause even though I been there and done some work I still cannot figure out how you folks get things to actually work!!
      Down here we run pipes through sleeves or plastic tubes where they pass through concrete to protect the pipe from abrasion and corrosion.
      If metal pipes are buried underground we wrape them as well for the full length underground and backfill the trench with clean sand.
      Give it a try I am sure it will work properly for you up there as well.
