Joe S: 90 percent of that valve could have been fabricated outside of that wall.
easier, faster and no burnt up studs. and too many 90s, killing your flow.
Tim Gregerson: How do you drain such a system after showering? It seems that these pipes
will hold a lot of water that will cool off for the start of your next
shower unless you add a diverter valve to a drain. Is the bottom out line
from the K-669 valve left open for this purpose. Your video doesn't mention
that open pipe at all, so I'm just wondering what the safe way is to add a
drain diverter to the K-669.
Dabig Wanker: OMG - what a mess - all that to take a shower. Sorta looks like the
plumbing for a Saturn rocket, or perhaps an new musical instrument. This
guy is proud of this - must work for Nibco (a company that makes copper
ramheez: @ormonddude BEcause you need a loop to maintain proper water pressure
through out the system.
mike cripps: I think this pipework is a bit excessive to what is actually needed, as
for the burn marks, i have never used a heat shield in my life and dont
intend to, if care is taken a shield isnt always needed. I personnaly think
the only thing that looks nice about this is the finish, if i was the
customer i would have like to seen as many bends pulled using benders
rather than preformed fittings. Also these valves arent for controling
pressure there for controlling flow, 2 massivley
kbodge: Yeah scorched wood is not a big deal....but charred wood is no excuse next
time try some flashing folded up in a tight Z behind what you're soldering
and you'll have no worries. Pressure loops are fine....should have planned
it out so you could run a T straight to the bottom of your control valves
to eliminate the the drops from the pressure loop to the control valves.
Not sure why the supplies are crossed...but I'm sure there is a reason for
it. Always nice to see copper put to good use.
onlyaredneckfortwose: Just wow how do those hold water and body or face sprayer lol
ron foster: @FlintMich pex for that job hell nooooooooo
Ted Salas: @333gpp333 It could have been prevented, a very unsafe sign of workmanship
camelazo: wooden and steam pipes nice!!!!
nicandlucian: nice but you burned up these 2x4or 6's nicely, when mine was done i showed
my plumber a simple easy way to prevented that, you can use ceramic tiles,
they block of the heat nicely prevent the 2x4 or 6's and surrounding wood
from burning, after all if they use ceramic tiles on the space shuttle for
reentry to prevent it from burning up, why not use it for your heat welding
on pipes that are close to wood. it worked nicely.
mrcaneda69: y not pex lol
Jack Phoenix: all the plumbers who gave u thumbs down are upset that you do better work
than them ! haters always gunna hate.
poohpush: its a single handle faucet i assume. it turns through cold to hot to avoid
phaschum: Volume control valves. As for the torched wood, what plumber with even a
few years behind him hasn't burned wood or the hair on his hands?
tracidairraid: co za flachowiec:D
Dmitriy Khazansky: Can you do this system with PEX?
Zosia Religa: Is that a special valve showing for the body sprayers? Why does it look
like there's a bulge in the body spray rough in? Also will this system work
well if you only have 30psi pressure from a well?
27TUBGUY: @xtcvsop overkill?? its actually required.
timcat100: 1/2 inch compared to 3/4 does not increase pressure. Christ I am not a
plumber and a monkey could figure this one out. You might even get a
decrease in pressure with an increase in flow/volume. Looking at this
monkey wrench is why I do my own plumbing.
Steve F: If you were creating a video named, "How to: KOHLER custom shower system
setup", would you show a different, more complicated setup that didn't
involve a "KOHLER custom shower"? And I don't see your "way more technical
and professionally installed" video anywhere. Would you care to provide us
all a link so we can watch and then bow down to worship you...
Sirus: Oh dear....
Ted Salas: What's up with all that burnt wood?
timcat100: I wasn't asking a question...but thanks for the offer.
boraboy4ever: Plumbing looks better than what some plumbers put in.
Michael Laverty: Really and I guess that's why the republicans have worked so long and so
hard making sure they remove any and all traces of unions so the working
class folks can enjoy the growing wealth of poverty in today's wonderful
free market society .. come on guy clean out your head gear and take a look
around when "little people" have more cash they spend it right ?
womackke: burnt studs, priceless
Dorsey Ingram: i'm stuplipiffed......
Theresa Haley: That looked great!
27TUBGUY: check out the moen I di, its crazy. on nu look refinishing on facebook.
harrisua1111: that is the most redundant piping arrangement i have ever seen. If i didn't
know any better i would say a tile guy did that. Be careful, don't cut your
arm on those solder joints! I also love that sweet rolling offset!!!! Nice
weedandwine: Copper is always the best way to do systems like that. It's much more
secure and easier to be exact when it comes to a customer with specific
requests. You have used way to many fittings and spent to much time though.
Balancing loops are fine but you've got to much going on there. Oh, and
burned wood is very unprofessional. While I'm on a roll here, all that work
and you install Kohler? I always seem to get call backs with Kohler valves.
Ooomfoofoo: Bending Properly bent copper tube will not collapse on the outside of the
bend and will not buckle on the inside of the bend. Mechanical tests have
shown that the bursting strength of the bend portion is normally greater
than it was before the tube was bent. The increase in bursting pressure is
the result of an increase in the tensile strength and yield strength of the
tube where it has been cold worked during bending.
George P: @tgsalas It's from the torch from welding the pipes.
BathroomsNottingham: wow very helpful video, thanks alot!
ramheez: @bull7136 perhaps the client was not interested in that type of design.
snyperkyzer: Good job! thanks for the info...
James Waechter: That is a nice looking shower in the finished pictures at the end of the
video. It looks like the installer got paid by the fitting! I hope the
incoming water pressure is high; it seems like a lot of unnecessary (in my
opinion) elbows, which will kill the water pressure. It's good the piping
downstream of the thermostatic valves is 3/4" to minimize that. I would
have seriously considered pex, but there is a lot going on inside the wall
that may have made putting together everything difficult.
Obeyance Dekat: I understood this, and im not even a plumber, and this is why i dont have
wanna-be know it alls like you doing my plumbing...
mike cripps: seperate things that alot of people get confused! The finish is good
weldone but if i installed that it wouldnt be the work that i chose to show
off on youtube, id use something way more technical and professionally
Bob D: Nice job ! I love when a plan comes together, don't you ? Trust me, done
body sprays before & they're not easy ! The finished product looks
great...nice to see other tilers in Atlanta doing good work ;-)
xtcvsop: way to excessive, no need to make it so fancy overkill
FSEVENMAN: Leave it to a Euro dude to find a way to squeeze in some techno jam. Great
job on the plumbing work. You almost hate to cover up those pipes. Nice
FlintMich: The end product looks outstanding. Forgive my plumbing ignorance, but
wouldn't it have been a lot easier to use PEX to make all of those curves
legoman2313: look like a rollers coaster.
Tjfreak: Thats nice work,I don't spend enough time in the shower to to get this all
going,get in - get out, know what I'm sayin.
Obeyance Dekat: Erm, what he was saying is that your statement is false. You could have 2"
pipes and the pressure would still be the same, an exageration of course...
But with 20Lb of pressure from the street, if you change the pipe size 1/2
up or down it wont matter, it will still be a constant pressure. The only
thing that may limit pressure, save the line from city water works, is if
you had more than 1 faucet going at the same time. Which he does, heh, but
thats what the pressure loops are for.
freeze427: Does the mixer valve have 3/4 inlets? All I can find are 1/2. Also are the
connections to the mixer valve and the volume valves soldered or threaded
connections with plumbers tape?
mike mitchell: Laverty, you've clearly done your homework (not). Rather that repeat tired
old talking points, let's take a look at a REAL example - Detroit -
controlled by democrats and unions for well over fifty years now. It's
bankrupt and and an urban wasteland. Republicans have "worked so long" to
prevent the US from suffering what Detroit has. But, let's keep funneling
money to the democrat party - I mean "to the unions." Great idea.
bull7136: All that work and couldn't put the tile on 45's . Would have looked much
