Default All in a days work

Did some rpz and double check valves the last couple days. Kept us busy, seeing the weather in New York doesn't know what it wants to do. Nothing too crazy but work none the less.

Great pics!

Do you groove your own pipe or do you order it?

I groove my own pipe. I'm using the ridgid 975 that goes into the 300 machine. I believe that's the part number. It's mostly schedule 10 so I can do it by hand. We did a couple schedule 40 6" though, what a pain.

Looks good. Were the block walls hollow? If so, what type of anchors did you use?

They were hollow, I drilled straight through and use 3/8 rod bolted on both sides with fender washers after the double expansion shields didn't work.

I recently install an Rp Just like the 2 inch one in your photo. Ran the drain the exact way and terminated above a laundry tub complete with the air gap fitting. Inspector failed it because of the drian.

I know this is an old thread but what was the inspectors reasoning? I've gotten into an argument with the inspector because of the opposite. Relief drain termination below flood level rim but that is what the airgap fitting is for. No need for two airgaps imo
