Yes, the floor is getting three inches of gyp-crete, and they will put the hardwood and tile on top of that. That particular bathroom is getting a granite floor.That is sweet! Different for my eye, which isn't used to that kind of plumb'n. WTG:thumbsup:
BTW- Am I missing something? Are they going to pour the floors?
The vent will be 6" above where it ties into the stack, I was granted a variance to have it go below a windowsill. That bathroom is getting interlock mother of pearl tile with a six foot wide medicine cabinet above the lavs, which are vessels sitting on a wrought iron frame with a granite top.Nice work bro, is your vent going to be 6" above the flood level rim.What kind of finished wall does/will it that have at the faucets,tiles,mirrors,other?
Chicago code requires an air chamber on every outlet.Nice. I like seeing stuff like that.
Why the air chambers?
When you say you got a variance, did you have to apply for it?
The UPC has a clause that says "unless structural conditions prohibit" or something like that.Chicago code requires an air chamber on every outlet.
I know the inspectors, I installed it and told them why, and it was passed without question.
Nope, they work.The UPC has a clause that says "unless structural conditions prohibit" or something like that.
As far as those air chambers go? I think every law requiring them should be stricken from the books. They make me mad. (The laws that is.) Air chambers are worthless as teats on a boar hog.
What does high rise have to do with air chambers?Nope, they work.
You have obviously never done high rise work.
I question whether that will even work, to drain down the system. The chances of that air chamber air locking seems very high doesn't it?I feel air chambers at quick closing valves are neccesary,I do how-ever make my own and do not buy the expensive buggers for residential.I believe it's just as easy to drain the system every now and then to recharge it.
High rises are piped from the top down, city water is pumped to the penthouse and is gravity fed back down, the older ones have no PRV's anywhere so it is not unusual to have 100 PSI or more on the lower floors.What does high rise have to do with air chambers?
(Understand, this ain't about dissing you. If code requires it, then you have no choice. Even if you like them, I have too much respect for you to bust on you over this. At the same time, it is one thing I have some pretty strong opinions about.)
You could of took the vent off the sanitary tee on a 45 then directed back to the stack at a point 6" above FLR.The vent will be 6" above where it ties into the stack, I was granted a variance to have it go below a windowsill.
