Hot water heater relocation


I am moving my hot water heater from the front of the house to the rear. I want to use the old hot water feed at the front and add an additional hot water feed at the back. The middle of the house has two bathrooms that would be getting Hot water from both directions (A LOOP) Is this OK? Gary

Hot water heater relocation


My plumbing is in a straight line; hot water tank, kitchen, bath room, bath room, bath room, and then the laundry room. I simply need to move the tank to the other end of the line, "the laundry room" Because of the contruction of my house I can not run the hot water feed to the middle where it should be, I can run it to either end or both. I would like to run it to both ends so my kitchen and the laundry at the other end have equal performance (pressure and lag time) I don't need help with any other aspects of the job except "would a loop have any effect that I haven't consider like an air hammer effect"

A loop would be fine... and it would accomplish what you want. I just don't see any real advantage. Actually a manifold using pex for home runs would be better and more efficient.

I have a manifold system in my summer house and loved it. The house we are taking about now is my winter house in south florida. It is a stilt house, the under side of the house is finished in stucco except for under the laundry room which was a deck at one point. Thanks
