Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-24-14

looking good-
you may want to check - it appears you are using pvc on the hot h2o supply - I think you have to use cpvc for hot side...

you are correct!

per some code...I said %&^$# the code.... for a bus that see's 140* for maybe 30 days out of the year, it'll be cooool and work fine

now for a new house build....I agree with you...altho' polished copper is more pimp

as long as I drain the lines to prevent rupture, I will be fine for MANY years......

dont forget, it took years to figure out that pvc will fail after 15+ years (or whatever it is) I will hVE A NEW BUS BY THEN

I am just a rebel w/o a cause......actually I want to move between mountains and the beach

Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-24-14

I love it when they have a better idea, and change all the rules. What was fine yesterday is no longer legal today.

For instance, I understand that grounded 120-volt electrical outlets, which for 50 years have been installed in "smiley face" position, now have to be inverted into "bullet hole in forehead" orientation. The idea is that, God forbid, a piece of metal were to slide down the wall and dissect the space between the outlet plate and the plug insulation, said metal would stop against a ground pin and not make an exciting connection between the hot and neutral pins. That is, unless it tilts the wrong way toward the hot after hitting the ground pin . . . .

I notice all my night lights with keyed plug blade widths would then be upside down, unless I get out a file and convert them all to metrosexual . . .

By the way, the water heater ideas look pretty, but I am still waiting to see how well they work.
