    DWV test question

    Thanks Jeff, good info. our main is 1” PEX A, the inspector suggested a shark bite PRV. Plan to put it in the utility room before the water goes anywhere. Any favorite ones? Would you go with PEX A PRV if that was your system? Do any professional plumbers use sharkbite except for...

    DWV test question

    Hey everyone we passed! The topping off held overnight. I did not have a PRV valve but he told me I could install it for the final. What a relief to pass on first try. Many thanks to Terry Wayne and all the other fine people here who helped me accomplish this. You guys are great.

    DWV test question

    Filled DWV from 50” lavatory pipe. Everything else except for roof vent plugged. All pipes dry (we did have to replace two connections, so the test worked in that manner.). I’ve had pressure on the system from the water since Friday. I’ve had to top off a few times and overnight it dropped two...

    Rough Plumbing inspection IPC am I missing anything?

    Hi John. I have been trying to get clarification on this but from my rate the 2018 IPC allows lead free brass and drinking water systems. And my friend who’s a retired plumbing inspector said he couldn’t find anything that said to the contrary.

    Rough Plumbing inspection IPC am I missing anything?

    Once I redo the brass unions I’ll be good to go I believe. Again I have tried to read what is expected of me but not feeling confident. Talked to a retired inspector and he gave me some hints but left a few things out, at $150 per failure I am trying to pass on go #1. DWV blocked at cleanout...

    Rough plumbing question IPC code, hot water heater, water hammer

    One other question if I may. Do I put expansion tank and all after rough in, and just run cold/hots and connect them? As far as water hammer goes, I already purchased (and installed washer) PEX A washer box and ice maker box. Obviously without hammwr arrestors. Are the screw on ones (see...

    So I have all the dvw done, started running the waterlines. I’ve done as much investigation and reading of the code as possible, and before I post I really try to find out for myself.
