    Need 30 and 60 degree 3/4" copper elbows

    PEX is most economical solution but if you want to stay with copper you could use those approx 1 foot long copper corrugated flex connectors that you sweat on.

    Are there any 6000 btu mini splits that only cool?

    Can you build new studio similar to what you wanted and take the axles off the old mobile home somehow put underneath to technically make a new building a mobile home in the eyes of the tax man?

    Are there any 6000 btu mini splits that only cool?

    The way they work is all based on the return air temp it senses on indoor head unit. Mine the indoor fan runs all the time (unless you put it on Eco mode). Then you can hear when the logic sends more refrigerant to modulate the system. Outside is the metering valve they use a EEV electronic...

    This seller on Ebay has several Cool Only mini splits but none are 6k. I never heard of the brands he sells but they all seem to be coming from 3 factories in China now and they slap different stickers on the sheet metal case. He has a system called Premium 12k cooling only with 11 ft install...

    Home Depot in NJ stocks Oatey Twist N Set flanges very similar to the one Terry posted pic of. They are up high on the self the clerks probably don't even know they have them.

    Mini splits don't have a smart stat like a Nest they have a remote control that you set the temp you want. The indoor unit has sensor to measure the return air temp and the evap coil temp and outside unit has ambient temp sensor and condenser coil temp sensor. The logic determines how much flow...

    9k will be fine because the compressors are inverter variable speed so they can adjust down and use the temp sensors to speed up or slow down the compressor depending on load. They are not as critical to size these systems as old a/c that do not have variable speed inverter compressors. They...

    Are there any 6000 btu mini splits that only cool?

    Love the house design very cool. I have a 100 yr old 3 family house in NJ and each apt is aprox 1000 sq ft. I have 18k mini splits in each unit on 1st floor and 2nd floor is bigger 1400 sq ft so I put in a 24k up there. The ceiling upstairs is the roof so it has high heat gain even with 2"...

    For example this Senville system is 9k and total is $699 free shipping includes lineset wire etc. So if it lasts 7 yrs you would not even have it repaired the labor and parts would cost more than slamming another new one in. Once you have them installed the hard work is over so replacing the...

    What is your heating btu requirement? Did you do a heat loss and a cooling heat gain on the house? The inverter systems have a wider range and not as critical to size as a non inverter system. Most common sizes are 9k, 12k, 18k, 24k, and a few make 36k in single heads. Then you can also get the...

    Mitsubishi is only 6k I know of but pretty sure it is it is a heat pump only. The many other brands out there now are so inexpensive you can basically treat them as disposable systems. Look at Senville, Gree, Midea, Kingsfin, a new one hitting the market is Kanion.

    Any issue using this fitting?

    Yes I now understand that the weir issue I was worried about with a wye changing direction to vertical is not a issue at all for toilets. And if you look at what HJ said in a post in 2018 he said toilets don't even use the vent at all but they are still required to be vented per code.

    Or what if you do this leave double santee but put a santee under each toilet to vent them into the existing santee.

    Any issue using this fitting?

    This is what I was talking about based on the photo of the ABS piping you have now. Leave the double santee but cut right side pipe make that a cleanout. Drop down into another combo wye tie in where your existing cleanout is.

    Any issue using this fitting?

    I disagree. The toilet’s trap arm, also referred to as the fixture drain, is the pipe between the trap and the vent. This distance depends on your local plumbing code. If you’re in the IPC, there is no limitation in length for the toilet’s trap arm. That’s right, no limitation! That means your...

    This document Methods of Venting Plumbing Fixtures and Traps in the 2018 IPC says it is ok on page 10. https://wabo.memberclicks.net/assets/pdfs/Plumbing_Venting_Brochure_2018.pdf

    Any issue using this fitting?

    This is how I always thought you had to vent toilet before it drops into a wye that goes vertical , but not needed if it was dropping into a santee or double fixture fitting. But as you guys all pointed out it is not necessary to do this for toilets going to a wye because toilets are different...

    Any issue using this fitting?

    The right side toilet just cut the horizontal pipe and put a cleanout there. Remove the elbow and drop straight down and put another combo that ties into existing combo where the cleanout is now. Move cleanout to back of new 2nd combo. You might be able to carefully hacksaw the existing...

    Any issue using this fitting?

    Look at the pic with Right and Wrong but substitute a toilet in place of the P trap because that horizontal pipe going to the wye on a toilet is called the trap arm. The Wye would not be a vent fitting that's why I say it would need a vent before the drop point but still can have its vent below...
