    Honda,

    Nice clean work, like those solder joints and how everything is plum and level.

    Question, this probably isn't cost effective, but would it have been better for the customer to install isolation valves on the branch runs to the fixtures? You know a pex ball valve off the manifold, then off to the fixture?

    I assume that grey thing is your expansion tank?

    Great work and thanks for sharing Honda.

        Work looks good, got one question though. What with the open ended piece of duct that is not connected to anything that appears to be centering a piece of pipe in the second picture??

        Regards,

                  The white stub at the top is the air intake, it's attached to the exhaust outlet and meant to be connected to a 3" inlet from the exterior of the building, safe to assume there are enough cubic feet of space to cover the Viessmans intake.
                  Robert brought up a very important point, but mine is a little different...
                  On radiant manifolds you should set up some form of flow control valves on each radiant loop, circuit setters or similar type valves.
                  The individual zones will have a tendency to heat in different proportions, the shortest ciruits will heat the most, a matter of the path of least resistance.

                    All the lines excluding the tubs and showers have stops at the fixture. Yah, mini ball valves at the manifold would've been nice. Customer didn't want to spend the extra $$$$$.

                    The duct work isn't quite finished, still need to install the fresh air exchanger. Notice the hangers poking down in pic 4.

                    DuckButter

                    Correct on the 3" combustion air intake. Obviously the manifolds pictured are for the potable water. No radiant manifolds are pictured. All the radaint manifolds are Wirsbo with flow control.

                    Thanks to all for the kinda words.

                      Hmm...

                      This must be what regular folks feel like when looking at circuit diagrams...

                      All I know is that if I saw this in someone's basement, I'd be fully convinced they were running a grow op.

                        I thought you were a production outfit.

                        Production companies out here would have a hard time justifying having such clean work on hundreds of homes

                        Nice job

                        Since there is access why don't the plumbers put isolation valves in the basement to protect plumbing throughout the home and not just at the fixture.

                          Spec homes are our companies' bread and butter, but we also do alot of high end custom homes. Our "track hacks" don't work on the high end stuff. We also have a large commercial crew. I've done my share of production houses, and yes, all my jobs are "clean" I take pride in my work and do a quality job wether its a $400K starter home or a $5M palace

                              I believe that would be the combustion air, a upper and lower combustion air, that must be the upper combustion air, the lower one would be piped down to the floor.
