Check out the well used air filters. The units use 6 filters, taped together.
Just a sample of the old plumbing ripped out. The "bomb in the works" water heater, urinal, lavatory, various valves. stops and oter fittings.
The original piping used brass fittings except there was a black nipple between the original hose bibb and the tee. The nipple simply crumbled when I clamped dow on it with pliers. It had been holding back 115 psig.
This is the blakck pipe nipple from the prv replacement. You may not be able to see it bout it's almost solid with rust.
Almost ready to go
DC stands for "digging concrete." Had to repair a broken lav riser.
The bottom was rusted away on this 6 gal. electric.
Lucas holds his "trophy" which was taken in the former men's room. Nice catch!
Look closely and you'll see where the T&P valve should be -- yes, that's a plug! But also notice the attention to detail with the siesmic strapping in place -- it's tied to an electrical conduit.
