Customer Changed His Mind And Went With A Rinnai. He Has 2 Rinnai's Already So He Wanted To Use A Third One For Space Heating. Ugh!
Here Are Some Pics. Still Got A Bit To Do, Escutcheons, Polishing Pipe, Etc.
In Most Circumstances I Would Have Approached It A Lot Different But For This Job, For This Time, This Made The Most Sense. Stuff Like Using A Taco (or Whatever) Zone Control Instead Of Building My Own. Stuff Like That.
But It Is Done And Hanging On The Wall.
Nah. That's too ugly. -grinOutstanding work. The one thing I would mention is to wrap the pipe with electrical tape where the uni strap touches it to prevent corrosion.
If he does, use the yellow tape it looks much better and the width of the tape should span the width of the clamp so you don't have to wrap around and around.Nah. That's too ugly. -grin
I couldn't find copper plated clamps locally. Aggravating to the nth degree. I asked the guys at the supply house why and they said no one ever asks for them. Then I asked what the local plumbers did when they wanted to clamp copper to uni. They said "All the guys we know just use these zinc plated ones for steel pipe and copper."
So what I did was line the inside of each clamp with a piece of 20 ml black tape. I even cut out the holes so the sticky part of the tape would not be exposed. OK, so my lovely wife did it for me. But at least it was done.
BTW, good catch. The HO is an engineer who has worked with metals all his life. One of the first things he did was peer closely at those clamps. He thought he had busted me one until he saw the tape. His look of surprise was priceless. He said he was going to make me take them all off and wrap the pipes with tape.
Sorry, I did not make myself clear.If he does, use the yellow tape it looks much better and the width of the tape should span the width of the clamp so you don't have to wrap around and around.
Don't put me there. I look way too far up to see him to be put there.You did a great job wrapping the tape. I think 10 mil is minimum so 20 mil is high quality. You just joined Spider in my list of plumbing heros.
Hey, I didn't spend any time taping those. My wife did. LOLA three dollar can of spray automotive undercoating would have saved you some time instead of taping the clamps.
We do it all the time.
