pipe size

Seema, evidently we've gotten past the concerns of the water in the basement, and now have concern on pipe size.

If the incoming main line to the house is only 1/2", this is very undersized for the house. You'll get water, but every time something like your outdoor hose bib or clothes washer is running, you'll notice a dramatically slowed flow elsewhere.

Hopefully the home would have at least 3/4" entering the home, but not all do. If the home plumbing is all 1/2", expect to learn to live with the idea nobody flushes a toilet while someone else is in the shower, etc. until the day you have the main from the meter or well and the primary lines in the home redone in 3/4" or 1".
