Plumbing and drain
 
2 Attachment(s)
Is it acceptable to have the hot and cold pipes touching one another?

Can I install the tub drain on an angle?

No ..You can however put a protective plastic sleeve(insulator) between them, as long as the two are not touching physically.

you need to have some sort of separation even if use ten mill tape,pipe insulation.And for the tub drain not sure i understand more info

It that an over loaded, inexcessable juntion box I see in that picture?

MikeRichardd 06-01-2012 07:20 PM

Well i do have the pile insulation but I'm not sure why it's a problem. Yes the junction box is a mess, I didn't do it, it's Gunna be looked after.

Thx...

So, essentially if I use some insulation I'm ok? Why is it a problem if they touch?

For one thing they will expand and contract at differant rates and make make a noise.
Any two pipes touching like that can make sounds when the water starts and stops.

Ahhh that makes sense. Thx so some insulation around should do the trick?

the noise would be last concern, how about it leaking after it expand and contract over and over not if when it will happen
