I don't understand what you mean by center aisle to reach stuff in the back of what part?. In addition to that pipe rack I have two 4" tubes up top. The inside one is just more 1-1/2" pvc and 1/2"/3/4" L because I use a lot and some 4" because it's not on top. There is some rando crap in there too, usually a 2x4 as well for mounting stuff. It is hard to tell but those pipes angle back a bit so everything is easy to reach from the back doors.


I am tall enough that I can reach most stuff from the doors. The three shelves with the sheet metal doors I do have to get in for. I keep foam pads on the floor just inside the side and back doors for kneeling on. I can reach the shop vac and the hose behind it without getting in.

I also have to get in to get the rest of the stuff under the shop vac and the buckets behind the big snake which have pvc fittings, extra screws/hardware, and other crap I have forgotten about.


Ask me for a part and I bet I have it in there. believe it or not even with all this stuff I can still slide a 60 gallon heater in on top.

I bet you have to remove several things to be able to get some item at the back or at the bottom.

Oh, I thought you were referring to the pipe rack. Also, I come on here at the end of the day when my comprehension is impaired


If, and I mean IF everything is put away than only the stuff in the trash barrel or behind the snake do I really have to dig for. But usually I have a couple boxes of parts I haven't sorted away yet on top of my tool boxes in the middle. The big cabinet with WB parts isn't that bad to go through, most of it is stuff I usually don't need and the important stuff is on top to the front.


It's all a trade off isn't it? If I didn't do the drain snaking I would have normal shelving on either side like the rest of the guys. But when I need to fit an extra snake drum, or the sectional, or god forbid the duct cleaner not having shelving on one side really helps. It's a lot easier fitting water heaters in too. Still in the box I just slide them right in. The old ones get slid on top of the flattened box after the change out. Any water goes out the rear door seals when I hit the gas
