Props. fun to see a completed job knowing all the little battles you fought getting the plumbing done. No one else really cares about that floor truss in the way of your toilet stop on 2nd floor that created all that extra work at the time... ya know.

Two baths each? Did you have a manifold at the water service and run mains to each units mech room? I guess does each unit even have their own mechanical room or one central for each building?

I'm in the middle of doing 20 16 unit (2 baths) apartment buildings so just curious how you ran your lines.

We've done 11 buildings and have probably pulled 20,000 ft of 1/2 blue, 19,000 ft of 1/2 red, and a good 25-30,000 ft of 3/4 for the mains. But I've tied in over half the lines and done half of the manifolds in the mech rooms.

I'll put up some snapshots one of these nights our jobs.

See my answers in Blue.


Two baths each?

One and two bath units


Did you have a manifold at the water service and run mains to each units mech room?

Mains to each unit no mechrooms.

I guess does each unit even have their own mechanical room or one central for each building?

Each unit had the own water heater they all wall wall heaters so no radiant heat.

I'm in the middle of doing 20 16 unit (2 baths) apartment buildings so just curious how you ran your lines.

We ran the line to each building ran in at 1-1/2" and if there were 2 baths on the third floor 1-1/2 all the way to the top, if 3rd floor had just the one bath per unit 1" to the upper floors, 2 main into each building. There was 4 units per floor.

We've done 11 buildings and have probably pulled 20,000 ft of 1/2 blue, 19,000 ft of 1/2 red, and a good 25-30,000 ft of 3/4 for the mains. But I've tied in over half the lines and done half of the manifolds in the mech rooms.
