plumbing, continued

The city's plumbing inspector signed off on our rough plumbing this morning. Everything looks good - our plumber, Ross Terrano, has tested all the lines to make sure they connections are good, and we can now proceed with installing drywall, cabinetry, tile and all the plumbing fixtures. The PEX supply lines are working, and the inspector seemed pretty happy with the graywater and rainwater lines.

At left, Ross and one of his crew installing the supply lines for the kitchen sink.




In the garage, the red and blue (hot and cold) supply lines are roughed in, and waiting for the solar hot water tank (which'll be installed by another contractor). The purple lines for the graywater system are ready for the BRAC tank to arrive, and the black line (the international color for rainwater, apparently) coming in from the right will connect with the three-filter skid we purchased last year. It's all coming together.

The two supply lines at the side of the house, going through the garage wall. The black PEX line will connect to the 3,000-gallon rainwater cistern and the copper line is connected to the municipal water supply. The gauge temporarily installed in the hose bib allows the plumbing inspector to verify the water pressure inside the house.

  1. You can save a little bit on plumbing by building the sinks and showers nearer to the hot water source. You don't need as much red when the output is on the closest side of the room to the heater. Nice work on the framing, too. pennyplumbing.com
