    We're upgrading our existing incoming mains to 32mm MDPE. We've dug the trench and exposed the connection to the mains stop cock. I'm guessing the current pipe is 25mm MDPE which shortly after becomes 27mm steel.

    What fitting do I need to connect the new 32mm MDPE to the stopcock? Or do we need a new stopcock from the utility company to connect a larger mains?

    Doesn't that defeat the point of a larger bore (32mm) incoming mains as we're still limited by the first bit of 25mm MDPE coming off the mains stopcock? Hence, ideally we want to connect straight to the stopcock?
     
  5. Maybe the tapping to the water main is 25mm or less,do you think that will defeat the point of a larger bore 32mm ?

    Mains was renewed in the street in the last 15 years, but it could well be. I guess we won't know until our meter is installed. If we can remove the 25mm on our side, I guess that only leaves one uncertainty though ;).
