Rough Plumbing

Woohoo!  We’re moving along at a pretty good pace…The trenching is completed, the rough plumbing is installed, and tomorrow we have our very first inspection (to close the rough plumbing).

On a side note, I spoke with our ABC agent today, and she said everything is in order for our permits to be issued.  She just needs to stop by for an inspection, which she said she would do when our construction is nearing completion.  Awesome.

Anyway, I have a lot of work to follow up on from a busy day, so I’ll keep this post nice and short.  Here’s some pictures of the sweet, sweet progress.  Cheers!

    • Hey Kip,
      Those s-curve bends in the pipes underneath a sink are called traps. Kind of like an airlock for a fermenter, in reverse. They’re designed to keep water in the bottom of the trap, so sewer gas doesn’t escape from the sewer. If they’re not used for a long time though, traps can dry out – which allows sewer gas to escape into the room. The trap primers supply a steady drip of water into the trap, so they never dry out.
      Don’t worry about not knowing this stuff…I’m learning too…

  1. That’s crazy. Let’s hope they don’t dry out. Then again maybe there is a market for sewer gas beer. It sounds like a title of somebodies homebrew “Sewer Gas Stout”. Thanks for the explanation.
