    Copper is an option. I think I have always been subconsciously opposed to putting something that soft in the ground to carry gas. That, and the supposed issues with high sulphur gas.

    If Grainger requires certs to purchase the Endot stuff, they certainly don't make it clear.

    Warning: This post may make some of you weep, gnash your teeth, and rend your garments.

    With that out of the way, I need to run a new buried propane line from the tank to the house. In the past...

    I like it (I was going to have a couple float switches anyway).

    Ok to mount a submersible horizontally? Or, is that bad for the bearings/bushings/shaft?

    For hydrogen sulfide and some other noxious gas. It may be that elemental sulfur will also be an issue with the pump. That is beyond my knowledge.

    Here is a very simplified overview. It does not show the air vent, filtration, or control circuitry.

    I threw this drawing together for a vendor that I was thinking of getting some parts from.

    Filtered vent to the outside.

    As the tank is drawn down (by a jet pump that is charging the pressure tank), fresh air is drawn into the aeration tank. During the next fill cycle, air is expelled....

    Spray vs Air Injector for Aeration

    I am putting together an aeration tank. I would like to avoid using a venturi air injector. So, I am planning on filling the tank from the top with agricultural spray nozzles (sized appropriately for...

    But... I heard that AAV's cause cancer, will kill your dog, and lead to divorce. :(

    I am not usually looking for what costs the least. With tools and other objects I usually try find the 80/50 spot - 80% of the performance for 50% of the cost.

    However, with the plumbing in the...

    I am a better carpenter and electrician than I am plumber (I am not any kind of plumber though). I am not totally opposed to framing the room in, but my time is over-allocated as I also have to...

    I have not verified that, but will try to soon. I would be really surprised if there is a trap in there (judging by the quality of what I have see).

  14. Uponor vs Viega (Propex Expansion vs Pureflow Crimp)

    As noted in another thread, I am getting ready to completely re-pipe a house we are buying. I was all set to order the M12 expander tool and go with the Uponor system.

    However, a plumber...

    All the PVC will be coming out - probably this Saturday (assuming we close on schedule).

    I'm not sure that is steel coming out of the ground - it may be dirty PVC. I will verify this weekend. I...

    The drain was supposed to be between the two vents.

    That would be...

    Scary, isn't it?

    A few other things I should have mentioned:

    1. There is no code inspection or enforcement here. I can get as crazy (but not retarded) as I want to.

    2. The current water...
  21. How much trouble am I in? This may make your eyes bleed.

    In the very near future, I need to put a utility sink and washer in this space.

    Obviously, a new water heater also.

    My initial thoughts involved a bulldozer. I can't imagine what the previous...
