Looks good, but the way I would have done this would have been to use a 1/2" tee after leaving the structure with a boiler drain. This would have provided a good drain down point and an outdoor faucet in one. There is no reason to have an outdoor faucet 4' high. Then your pipe could have been ran completely horizontal with a ball valve installed inline. When dropping to the poly I would have used a another 1/2" tee. On the top side of the tee you could have installed a 3/8" FIP x 1/2" sweat adapter. This would have allowed you to install a shrader valve for use in winterizing the line.
Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.
the work looks real good but you asked so here it is
at the house i would have came out far enough to get past the brick bump out
then why 45 up just 90 across
then where you 90 up i would put a tee up for the hose and keep going horizontally for the pool putting the valve on the horizontal then put a 90 down to the pool line . this will also be your drain in the winter by taking apart the union .
then for the hose put a ball valve then a st90 facing out with a tee on the it and 2- st 45 facing down and out or 2- 90s off the tee facing down on a 45 or more . then use a female x fitting adapter then use a brass mip x garden hose fitting [ i hate boiler drains ] then they can use those hose shut off fittings ?
running the pipe this way you use less copper looks cleaner with less fittings with the 45 .
the screws in your plats will rust in 1 year use stainless steel or paint them
the electric cover use your sand paper and sand off the black
but all in all you do good work and it just takes time to learn this stuff we were all there before [ except rick he was born this way ]
Nice work. Where is the shutoff located inside? That's where I would install a drain, just after the cutoff, so it can be blown out or you will be back next spring to repair that exposed pipe. If you put it outside you will still have water in a vunerable section of pipe.
What's the point in having a 2 ft bury if this pipe is exposed?
The 2' bury is no longer approved in our county.
