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.
sondre solland: its going to leak !
emutiny: you cant do crap with 30 psi. get the well man out there.
Dalton Pira: you are good. like you said. master. i live in washington DC, Iam here to get some ideas to built a bath. shower bath.... i like the way u did the bench by sand blocks... very good.... I like to have some training from you..
Steve F: Oh no... This guy obviously has a doctorate in Hydraulic Engineering and he understands static and dynamic pressure far better than the guys at Kohler who wrote the requirements that the presenter followed. We should bow...
Steve F: Have you researched anything you have said? Do you know all US plumbing codes so that you can state so assuredly that he wrong for his area? And you don't use a heat shield AND don't burn wood? If that isn't a crock then you are applying heat improperly and your sweat joint is just as much crap as your post. Oh, and thanks for correcting the word usage of the presenter who is using ESL. I HATE rubes like you! Complement the guy or shutup. This is fricken YouTube!
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...
Steve F: Sorry, not code...
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...
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.
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?
timcat100: I wasn't asking a question...but thanks for the offer.
edspy000: You need volume along with pressure. The pressure from the street is nearly constant, the only thing that will decrease the pressure is if you are using all the fixtures in your house or if the main supply for the house is 1/2"or better yet, if the supply from the street is 50 year old galvanized as it was in my house. When replaced the main supply from the street we found that the 3/4" galvanized had corroded down to about 3/8". We still had street pressure but only from one faucet at a time.
edspy000: The ceramic tiles on the space shuttle are quite a bit thicker than your average 1/4" tile.
edspy000: You and your plumber the tiles didn't explode on you. I had a plumber friend of mine who thought that would be a good idea as well until the tile exploded like it was hit with a hammer.
Jack Phoenix: all the plumbers who gave u thumbs down are upset that you do better work than them ! haters always gunna hate.
mcboogerballs88: or he could have just used a soldering mat,the ceramic tile would have taken the heat away from the blowtorch i bet he was there for awhile.
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.
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.
20RoyalSuperKing: Oh dear....
Michael O'Connell: if its coming in 3/4 its fine, it wont decrease.
Theresa Haley: That looked great!
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.
Bill Calvani: looks like he almost burnt the hose down sweating those pipes together..HA...maybe it would have been better to prefab it and make the 3 connections when its ready to be tied in.
Pav Bridges: Could of just added a PRV after the mains or before the shower pipe entry if u have high pressure problems & maybe a pressure relief valve if required. What a jigsaw maze joke of unnecessary pipework ass bandit plumbing...
womackke: burnt studs, priceless
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 work...
Dorsey Ingram: i'm stuplipiffed......
Andrew Beckwith: are those new style "BLACK" 2X6. Never seen those before. Buy a flame guard!!
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 ?
poohpush: its a single handle faucet i assume. it turns through cold to hot to avoid scalding
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.
Christopher Gibbons: Actually the purpose of the design is to eliminate variations in pressure. The loop acts like an inductor.
onlyaredneckfortwose: Just wow how do those hold water and body or face sprayer lol
87woutor: sounds like your missing a mixing valve/fossit....
Joseph Scavello: I installed a shower only diverter, Moen i think for a basement I'm working on. Three holes, hot on the left I assumed cold right and top going to shower head. Now you turn the handle and it only goes right which turns on cold only or left which turns on hot only! Straight up and down is off. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong other than not calling a plumber
epic bamf: please, its not rocket science, most 'trade' people are over paid union slacks anyways...
mobgrazer: need a bit my char on the lumber
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.
BathroomsNottingham: wow very helpful video, thanks alot!
WDPlumbing: Ok so he did it old school copper welding instead of pex, maybe he hasn't invested in a pex system on his truck. Running 3/4" sure isn't going to lose any flow so no harm there, I don't get what the top loop is for, feeding the two body sprays, why connect and make a loop? Can't be for water hammer. Also if customer wanted this layout not much you can do to cut down on the pipe work, but yeah pex would of been faster and cheaper.
BathroomsNottingham: wow very very interesting!
G66CA: Pipe benders thin the outside radius wall of copper tubing.
mrcaneda69: y not pex lol
soare mihail: asa dai foc la casa
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?
tracidairraid: co za flachowiec:D
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 work guy.
Dmitriy Khazansky: Can you do this system with PEX?
ramheez: perhaps the client was not interested in that type of design.
