How do you rough plumb a house After my main water line comes into the hotwater tank with three quarter piping how much more three quarter piping do I need befor I switch to half inch piping?
the rule is 1/4" more per every three branches. In other words, you should know how many hot water appliances does the water heater feed. Ex, 1/2" copper pipe is enought… for 1 kitchen faucett, 1 lavatory and 1 shower faucett. But if you attacha another faucett in the way, you should start with 3/4". Another factor is where they are located. If the water heater is located in the basement and the faucetts are located in the first or secod floor, you should run the 3/4" pipe up to that floor. (MORE)
