    Nice job. I love the look of a job after you paint the pipe.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    What's the deal with all of the extra 90s and pipe nipples, why not just go straight out the side of the pipe? Also, why the weird random spacing of the pipe blocks? One more thing, if that is a rubber roof, you should push the rocks away from under the pipe blocks before you put them down, to minimize the risk of damage to the roof. O.K., maybe the last one is pushing it a little, but I think that is the proper thing to do, especially if you were to be supporting something heavy (like a condensing unit sitting on couple of 4x4's).

    Other than that, nice clean looking paint job. Is that black pipe or galvanized under the paint?

    So you guys in Manitoba have to point your tees up for a branch line? Weird.

    In Alberta we aren't allowed to have drip legs outside, and they make us support anything under 1" every 4 feet, plus on both sides of every fitting.

    Looks good though!

    We have to have drips. The real question is why do those responsible for adopting the codes think they know more than those who write the codes?

    + ...3? or is it 4. packages look nice too.
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.
