Re: Rough Plumbing


Plumbing is looking good! Don't forget the insulation and I'm not a fan of OSB, but everyone knows this already.

I went ahead and slapped up a couple of nail plates for you, so that the inspector wouldn't hollar.

Re: Rough Plumbing


It looks ok but, I would add 3/4"air chambers to the 1/2" risers especially on the shower valve. Single levers are notorious for water hammer.

Re: Rough Plumbing


Every outlet has to have an airchamber here, and you have to provide 24" airchambers at the top of all risers.

Re: Rough Plumbing


It isn't code here but, it should be. I always believe in adding them. I have seen way too many houses around here that are plumbed in only 1/2" copper, you close a faucet and the echo sounds like thunder.

Re: Rough Plumbing


Air chambers will fill with water within 2 months! Waste of time/material!
With city water {100# or so}, install a pressure reducer. Set at 50-60#.
Codes say 80# is MAX, for just that reason. 60# is PLENTY.
Another tidbit... noise is also caused by the burr left by cutting copper pipe! Water swirls inside pipe and w/over 80#, sounds like a train passing thru the house.

If you had # 80 lbs. of pressure that would wear your pipes out prematurely.

My pex looks that good. That's why I use drop ells for stub outs against backer blocks. Still the best support system.

Now show me what this plumbing looks like today.... What? You can't because it's covered up and nobody in history will see it again until they are tearing down the house?

That's what I thought. It's plumbing. If it works correctly and effenciently, then it makes no difference what it looks like. You plumbers really should get stop bragging about the "looks" of your behind-the-wall work. It's not art.
