Need Ceiling Idea for Ductwork that cuts Across Middle of Room
Shouldn't be that much to drop a sprinkler head if it's not a commercial building where they have to shut down/drain the whole system (which is a separate entity from the regular plumbing system and regulated/inspected by the fire marshal). In a residential situation I would think it's a matter of shutting off the water, drain the lines, add a longer piece of pipe to the sprinkler head and turn the water back on?? Haven't actually run across residential sprinklers yet, though. I would leave as much of the ceiling as high as possible. Just box around the duct in the middle......
