I am designing a gravity flow system for a rural area. The elevation difference b/w the source and point of use is 1004 feet (306 m). I will provide a 1.5" Schedule 40 PVC pipe. I would like to know what is the ideal static pressure for pipe and fittings where I should locate a break pressure tank in the system. Also will pressure reducing valves serve the same purpose as break pressure tanks?
