I am a Mechanical Engineer with 5 years of experience, and I had never done plumbing before. I get the basics of piping, pumps, etc. but I have no experience when it comes plumbing best practices.

The reps or engineers for the pump mfrs are great resources. I always use duplex systems. I prefer factory pre-assembled. Liberty makes very nice products.

Your statement is truth. Had a guy call me out to bid on rolling gas pipe underground for a few things in his back yard. When I got there he proceeded to tell me he was an engineer, and this is how you size gas, and this is how it's supposed to be installed, etc. I just laughed inside, cause he was wrong on almost everything. Just enough knowledge to be dangerous. I gave him a ridiculous bid and left. I never heard back from him.👻
