  • S.F. row houses 3 ft. one side 1 1/2" on other

    On some of these old homes there is about a 1 1/2" separation between the siding on each home . Is it code to run out a 3/4" copper blow off with 90 turned down [ T.+P.] from a shower steam generator?
    Did this last week . Inspection this week. thanks tool P.S. Micro sea snake came in handy
    for this. Passed My rough insp. yesterday [ a big one for Me ] No mention of the drain pan exiting into 1 1/2" space

    I don't recall any set back requirements on a T&P line.

        tool, keep in mind that the discharge height has to be between 6'' and 24''' from the ground.

        the 6'' was designed to keep the dirt and debris, bugs from plugging them.
        the 24'' was to keep people, kids from getting under them.

        look at the bright side.
        you can paint both houses at once with a roller

              Just curious, Tool. Where did you terminate the drain line, or did you just leave it capped?

                It would be crazy to cap a T.P. It runs out the siding with a 90 towards the ground. Approx. 8" off the ground

                  Not the relief valve, the tank drain.

                        ok i'll bite. how do you build a house 1 1/2" apart? i can remember doing houses with 0 set back. we built the walls on the deck and raised them 2 stores at a time. these weren't balloon framed but panelized, sided, trimmed and painted also. then set with crane. neighbors weren't friends. do they have windows on 1 1/2" side? how did you get the ell on? just cut a hole big enough to get the whole thing through? to be honest i'm a rural hick.i've never seen this. i'm trying to visual this. what is the logic here? i'm not pickin here, i'm curious. thank you. breid

                          My new house building was in Mass. This home was built in 1936. I soldered a 90 on a straight section slightly oversize hole did it. No windows in either house walls that are this close.

                            Not to confuse the issue, but is the unit you're installing equipped with an auto drain?

                              I'm not familiar with this terminology.
                              Could you explain?
