orange you glad
New plumbing code requires us to have sprinklers throughout the building (as our street is considered narrow). The piping for the sprinklers is bright orange.
On each floor there is a manifold for the connection of all the tubes for the radiant floor heating. The tubing is also bright orange and runs in the warmboard which is the subfloor. It has aluminum on the top to spread the heat (or the cold during this winter - we do not have heat yet).
