Day Ninety-Two and Ninety-Three, 27 - 28 January, 2016Wednesday morning, I decided to get right to it and hook up the whole house filter (the little blue tank in the photo below) and the salt-free water softener (the big blue tank).

Since we're still living there, it's a bit of a juggling act to determine just when we should move things like that down to the new house. It's partly a question of dealing with bugs, oh, and convenience, of course. Who wants to constantly be getting up to let three dogs and three cats (since they use the doggie doors as well) in or out virtually 24/7?

In the photo below, you can see how I split the original incoming water line, so that now the incoming water is routed to the right-hand through-wall into the utility room and connects with the filter and softener. After leaving the softener, the water then comes back out via the left-hand through-wall, and then connects back with the piping going into the house.
I did this, because on the original construction, when the water pipe entered the house, it was routed under the concrete floor. Not knowing exactly where it went, meant either tearing up some of the floor to find it, or to simple route it like I did.

Part of the issue seems to be a common problem here, in that PVC piping may be coming from one vendors, and the fittings from others. So, every now and then you find fittings that seem a tad loose when you glue and press them together. I had several fittings that seemed to be that way. I'll have to trouble-shoot it and see if I can get the leaks under control.
