Plumbing

“Facilites” are the ol’ porta potty.

At some point a shower will be installed outside. Black pipe on the roof it’s starting to look like, stay tuned.

Water tank is 5 gallons, with hand pump, and it’s inside the heated envelope for winter operations.

Water system installed. 5 gallon plastic can, and a small hand pump. Sink is a copper bowl with a residential drain attached. There’s a 2″ PVC pipe that goes through the floor. Simple, works.

In order to get to the tank, or the garbage can that’s there you have to lift the countertop off. So, just pull up the sink and lift the countertop. The sink drain tube slides inside the PVC. There’s some tape there to seal between the two tubes, but just for air. The sink tube is in there a good 4-5 inches.

The tank. There’s a clear plastic pipe that goes to the bottom, with the flex tube going to the pump.

The drain tube. Held in place with some blocks/strapping. Took some measuring and luck to end up underneath with nothing in the way. Not the prettiest thing, but it works and it’s out of sight.

And the finished result….. The drain is off set to line it up with the PVC which is where it is to avoid a cross beam below.
