Supply connection for yard hydrant

My original plan for connecting a couple of yard hydrants was to tee in to the PVC supply line just my side of the rural water pit, put in a valve and riser and run plastic to my hydrants. In talking to some people and looking at some of the other posts here, it has been suggested that I bring the supply from inside the house instead. I'm in eastern Nebraska so I'll have to bury it 4'. Doesn't poking a hole in the poured basement wall to bring the pipe out create potential 'water-in-the-basement' issues even if it's sealed well? Our basement stays dry now so I don't want to create that headache if I don't have to. Looking for opinions. Thanks.

Millions of homes are done in this fashion without leaks. Sealing the wall from the outside in is where you provide the best possibility for no leaks.

It's all up to what you want to do; I've seen those teed off the main line with no problems. Most like the idea of starting from an area where you can isolate the hydrants but you can do that within the meter pit as well.
