You have given the length of pipe, now you need to say how much water you need to use at the end of it. In the same way you can not push an elephant through the eye of a needle, you need to know the size (gallons per minute) of the water you need to push through the pipe. Many plumbers assume a pressure of 40-50 pounds (psi). Once you know how much water to send through, they can tell you what pipe size carries that much at that pressure.
