    Drain Layout Approval - Full Bathroom + Bar Sink

    Wayne, Once again (for probably the 15th time over the last year plus), thank you. You are correct in all of your assumptions. Actually, your idea of Alt 1B may be the best bet simply because I have all the fittings necessary to do that vs. having to order the 3x3x3x2 San-Tee with Right Side...

    Drain Layout Approval - Full Bathroom + Bar Sink

    Had to go out of state for a month for some family stuff. Finally back to working on the house. Decided on a possible change to the layout. The following pic has two alternatives and is a plan view of the layouts. I think both would work to wet vent the entire bathroom group. (Note that...

    Drain Layout Approval - Full Bathroom + Bar Sink

    Wayne, As always you are supremely helpful. I don't know what I was thinking about wye for the shower. I was being dumb there. As it turns out, I have a decent amount of flexibility with this layout. This is all coming down from the second story, the stack will be behind a wall and the W/C...

    Drain Layout Approval - Full Bathroom + Bar Sink

    On to the next bathroom that needs to be completed. This should be pretty straightforward. Is this layout acceptable (see attached pic)? A few questions: 1) Is the single 2" vertical stack vent appropriate for the water closet and the shower? 2) Is the best choice a 3" double wye (with...

    Acrylic Alcove Tub Install Framing Issues

    Hello. I am a WAYS away from actually getting to the tile stage. For now, my plan is to fur out the wall and install some kind of edge profile. I might still consider moving the toilet flange so I can then fur the entire wall out he same distance, but I am not at the point I have to make that...

    Rough in shower valve (unique placement issue)

    On to the next item of the remodel saga. I'm completing the layout for the master bedroom/closet/bathroom. As you'll see from the rough print I created, If I center the shower valve, it would result in it being at the dead center of the intersecting wall between the bathroom and walk-in...

    Water Heater Stagnant / Flush?

    Thank you everyone for the continued ideas. One key item that may or may not matter. I roughed in all new water lines and have NOT filled them yet. So Ideally (if possible) I'd like to complete a thorough cleaning/flush of the rank without running water to the new lines yet. So if I can put...

    Water Heater Stagnant / Flush?

    Thank you everyone for the feedback. Quick update. I put some water in the tank for the first time in a long time, and then drained some of it (I did get a small amount of sediment/rust particles). Filled it some more again and drained some more and it was clearer. I have it filled right now...

    Water Heater Stagnant / Flush?

    When it was filled, it was filled with chlorinated city water. I have a nearby sump pit that I can drain to. I think I'll move forward with the plan to fill it up and drain it out and see how that goes. My main concern would be if any bacteria or mold could have started to form inside the...

    Water Heater Stagnant / Flush?

    As I get closer to pressurizing the entire system for the first time, the next item to address is the water heater. Quick story is that it was filled with water that sat for about a year (late 2019 to late 2020). About 16 months ago I emptied the tank fully and while the water that came out...

    Expansion Tank Installation Questions / Opnions

    - I set the pre-charge exactly as you described. (set to 60 psi which is what my PRV is set to). Glad I did it right. Good idea on the empty tank sound. I'll do that.

    Expansion Tank Installation Questions / Opnions

    Reach4, Just to clarify, this expansion tank is only on my incoming city water line (not my separate well water system). So there is no softener that I need to worry about. The city water is what will be heated. Also, My plan was to put a shut-off in the white pex line after the tee and...

    Expansion Tank Installation Questions / Opnions

    Thank you all. What I started to debate was how important it is to have the tank closer to the "source" in terms of functionality. I guess I'm in one of those situations where I probably chose a location that will work in terms of the rules, but perhaps is not ideal compared to standard...

    Expansion Tank Installation Questions / Opnions

    I'm installing a brand new expansion tank on my fully re-piped system. My current plan is to install the tank right after the incoming city water service. Although I started to rethink this for a few reasons. As you'll see in the pictures, everything else is basically completed (PRV, Water...
