The Lovely Bones

Copper valving and lines are in.

Starting to shape up.

  1. The main manifold valves & diverter were not heated up, they’re threaded and taped – all the rest of the copper joints were soldered and pressure tested – it’s holding water under pressure at every point.
    I “lucked out” by having 1/2″ pipe internally. The valves are dual threaded inside/outside for 1/2″ or 3/4″ pipe – so my water pressure remains the same as before and it’s considered “Green” because it’s 1/2″ instead of 34″… 🙂

    • Fuck “green.” The amount of water flowed is determined by the outlet (showerhead or restrictor) or the on/off valve. I am so sick of these enviro-eggheads fetishizing making everything smaller or less, regardless of whether it makes a difference or not.
      Oh, and by the way, what ever happened to the Water Cycle I studied in school? You know, that one where water that goes down the drain returns to the lakes and oceans, from whence it evaporates to form clouds that bring rain and snow back to our mountains and reservoirs, and eventually our faucets?
