Plumbing, Shower (michael)

Plumbing, The Shower. We picked a single handle, anti-scald, Moen fixture. It has a nice clean look and is easy to install. Just follow the instructions and you will do fine. If you are not comfortable with plumbing, call a plumber. You don't want this to leak. You will have to rip the wall out to fix it. Not fun! I used 1/2 inch PVC, because we had it. Short runs don't expand and contract like long runs. The long runs, 8' or more, tend to pull apart when using the recommended primer and clear glue. Mostly on the hot water supply line. I found that you can use PVC pipe for both hot and cold supply lines if you use the purple primer and the dark purple HOT glue and let dry for 48 hours. Now, that's for short runs only. Less than 7'. I ran the lines down through the wall plate and floor into the storage compartment. I left them long and will cut them to suit later. Next, plumb the toilet.

  1. Saw your post this morning before going to work. You blow me away with the speed you are progressing. Sometimes it's hard to know what to do first. I have read where the trick is to try and foresee where your tanks, elec., plumbing, heating, will fit with regards to the bays, etc. You have your contracting background to aid your progress, where I know my way around the kitchen and am probably over cautious when it comes to construction. A tip this old guy told me when we were doing the BlueBird was to remember that everything Vibrates and gets knocked around a lot more than a stationary house.

    Sorry about my Rant the other night. I usually don't voice my opinions that loud.

    Keep the good work and remember to put your tools away!! Tom & Carol
