As some of you figured out, I am doing some remodeling and trying to do as much as I can myself.
I have questions about running water lines:
1 Do I have to run the hot and cold water lines to the sink together or can I get the cold water from the main line (very close to where the sink is going) and run a hot water line from the hot water heater by itself. I know there is no real reason that I can’t do it this way but I don’t recalling seeing a hot water line run by itself and was wondering if there is anything against the code in doing it this way.
2 I am also making a extra line for a hose on the other side of the house. This run will be going through an unheated crawlspace for about 50ft. Can I set up a drain valve at the lowest point to drain the water in the winter (or a valve at the highest point to allow air in to get the water to drain out? Any special valve needed to do this?
