2010-Oct-12 - Wooroloo - Installing Bathroom #13
Yay !

On Tuesday, Wayne came and finished off all the plumbing !

  • Connected up toilet and cistern
  • Connected trough waste to ecomax
  • Connected up copper for trough
  • Connected kitchen sink waste to ecomax
  • Connected up copper for kitchen sink
  • Installed filter system under sink
  • Tested the gas installation
  • Started up the gas HWS using a small gas bottle
  • Installed a pressure reduction valve at the mains.

I took the day off to answer any questions and help out with trench digging and running off to the hardware for parts.

I put in a really long day on Monday to make up for not working on Tuesday.

I forgot to take my camera - so no photos of this work until next Saturday

The shower throws a lot of water beyond the hobb so I will need to wait until I have installed the shower stall walls before I can use it.

However, it is really great to have hot water, an inside toilet and a working sink.

Some of the waste lines on the outside of the house need some flanges fitted over the hole to tidy them up - I'll get to this over the next few weeks.

Wayne had to use a repair kit in the 100 mm sewer line from the toilet because I had already cemented it in to position - apparently, the plumber usually fixes the toilet pan last on to the end of the waste line.

Just before Wayne dropped the laundry trough in to its final position I was able to apply silicon sealant under its lip and across the back and then pop rivet it in to the wall studs - I'm pleased with the result - it seems very solid and can't move relative to the wall at all.
