    I would like to have the water hooked up to a pressurized pvc line
    Would the nipples work?
    What's oUT there?
    Any ideas for a constant water supply?

    I'm in southern California, so no worries about freezing

    You can but you need a pressure regulator between the source and the nipples.
    Nipples are very pressure sensitive regardless of type.
