The science of plumbing as art

It’s taken about a week but the team from Custom Plumbing is, according to Albert, 24-48 hours away from completing rough-in, mapping and installing the basic lines without making the final connections, getting ready for the plumbing inspector.

Everything has been checked with a level as each joint is glued — it’s meticulous work to ensure proper pitch for waste drainage.

Above, a vertiginous look from below at the pipe runs between the ceiling joists and up the wall of what will be bath 3 upstairs.

Looking up at the ceiling joists above the kitchen to the shower drain line at left, turning 90 degrees, then 90 degrees again at right, traveling straight back to the waste stack in the mudroom wall beyond. The larger pipe fittings at right side of photo will connect the waste stack in the mudroom to the toilet in the master bath.
