Project 1: Fresh Water Plumbing

The current system is old and needs updating. The flexible clear lines are more brown than clear. The water smells and needs to run a minute or two after not being used for a few hours to clear the bad odor. The water manifold from the tanks is showing rust. The one positive point is that the water does improve after a few minutes, which hopefully means the tanks are in decent shape. Primary goal: Drinkable water from the tanks Other Goals, in no particular order: Good water pressureClean water delivery, remove smells and occasional rust/sludgeCreate a common fill for all tanks that goes through a set of filters before water enters the tanks.Build in failsafes to stop potential leaksUpdate fixtures for aesthetic reasons DON’T PANiC carries 200 gallons of water in four stainles...
