Hi everyone,
Going to move soon from FL to Costa Rica and build an off grid Quonset hut. Looking for expert opinions on my choices of plumbing supplies that I am taking with me for the plumbing system. I am in maintenance now and want a good, least trouble free and long lasting system.
Rinnai tankless propane heater, Delta one piece toilet with 3" flapper, Delta faucets (ceramic valves if possible, Delta ceramic shower valve, Zurn Pex B with expansion fittings (don't want Uponor Pex A leaching).
Any advice on my choices? Any DIY level software that I can design the pex system in to see piping runs, piping sizes, fittings needed, manifolds, etc. If no software, can it be designed by a service online? Or can Zurn or supply house give me an idea of what I need as far as piping the house if I show them floorplan? I don't have to worry about permits or codes, just need to do a good job for myself. Water will be coming from a elevated tank on the property. Should I also use a booster pump? Thanks.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
