    Putting a water line in shed


    I decided to finally put water in my shed. I'm going to put a regular hydrant in the shed and hook that to the sink line, just in case I don't heat the shed I can shut the water off easily. This is the drain for the sink,I wish I would have put the drain in the right spot when I poured the cement, I think it would have been easier. I cut the lines with cement saw and then went after it with a jack hammer.

    That looks to much like WORK!

    You must want running water in there pretty bad. That's a lot of work to go through.

    Having access to water in the shop is great!

    Having pipes freeze and break in the winter sucks…. and replacing them sucks really bad!!!

    It gets cold enough in the winter here that I shut off the water to the shop and drain the pipes when it’s going to get below 25 degrees. You probably have one of these figured in, but just in case you don’t they’re pretty handy to cut the water off and drain the pipes.

    And yeah, I found out the hard way to leave the drain open when you shut the water off so in case the shut off valves seeps a little bit the pipes don’t fill back up with water.

    I handled that problem long ago I put a well in my shop and run the water over head in copper pipe. It goes to a sink with a 5 gal water heater under it. Great to wash up in before going into house. The shop is heated so no worries there.
