Plumber Manhattan Beach
Where do you flush the heater when it starts to scale up?
I always install a boiler drain on the inlet and outlet for that purpose.
I wish outdoors was an option here.
I was looking for wheel handles like the boiler drains I use, guess that shows me for not paying better attention.Thats what those valves are for at the bottom, they are a service kit, if you look close, you can isolate the heater fromt he water system, hook up your pump and bucket of vinager and flush, then when the time comes, flush the vinager out before you feed back into the house.
Looks nice. A couple of questions:
Do you like Noritz over say-Rinnai? I love both, Rinnai and Noritz. They are both top of the line, I install way more Rinnai then Noritz.
Why the 90's on the T&P? That is a pressure only, the tankless do not use a combination temp and pressure because there is no storage, tank, so it is a pressure relief valve only, and the 90's are there because the customer is going to hide all that pretty pipe in a shroud. He gave me an exact area I had to get the pipes into.
What's the T in the hot line for? That tee was uncovered when I removed the heater, we have no clue where it goes, other then the fact there is a ball valve on it, so I cut it back in and before the deck goes in, we will investigate. Better to have it tied in and cap later then to have to make room and tie it in later.
Thanks. I honestly want to know if there is a reason for the 90's & the Tee. Looks good.
I do have one question
How come you grouped all that copper together, I mean if you had to replace one of those lines behind the other it would be a pain,
I am not knocking you job, BUT I would have spaced those copper lines better with at least some room on each side and then used a swing joint,
This is what I am referring to , you had the room for some kendoff on that wall and then you could have clamped those three lines equally ,
Sorry , I am just a freak when it comes to this stuff, prolly cause of my training, My old bosses would have fired me for a copper grouping like that .......
But it is a clean job all in all , I just didn't like that copper bunched up...
Once again, NOT knocking just an opinion
My bad man, I wasn't knocking and I did say you did a clean job, I was just scratching my head going .....he did such a nice job with the pro press and all whats with the grouping....Copying and pasting what I already said:

If you read what I already posted you wouldn't have this question.That is why they are "grouped".

Well now I am completely embarrassed because I did not see the text you wrote.
I do this all the time when I code as well. I read things to fast
I agree, Thats why I try to promote the trade and things in the trade as much as I can,By the way, I feel the same way about plumbing and us protecting the health of the nation. Sadly our trade is losing respect! If one was to study codes and regulations, they would understand the reason why plumbing is installed the way it is, and they would understand it is more then just a vent, or an "air gap", or a medium sweep.
