Default Propane line with two 2nd stage regulators

I'm running gas pipe from a 500 gal. propane tank 200 feet to two small houses. One house will have a 9-21k btu heater, and a stove (4x 8k btu burners and 15k btu oven) and the other will have a 21-36k btu heater, a stove (4 @ 9k btu, 2 @ 12k btu and two 20k btu ovens), and a propane dryer (22k btu). Each house will have a 140k btu water heater. Charts I have seen show that with a 2-stage system, running 3/4 inch pipe between the first stage regulator at the tank and a second stage regulator 200 ft away is more than adequate. But what if there is a "Y" in the line and one is running gas to TWO 2nd stage regulators - one for each house? Is 3/4 inch adequate? Bob

Amen!
I remember that one.

Call in the pro, it's not worth the $$

Of course...even the pro's screw up once and a while.
I think I heard the energy plant go BOOM all the way up here.

I bet you did hear that Kleen Energy Plant go off.

I can see their stacks from my house and I had relatives on the shore, and up in Tolland County feel and hear that one....
