Before inspection do I teminate the wires or

When I wire my addition, for 120 volts, do I terminate the wires into the actual breakers in the power panel, and at the receptacles and light boxes, before the inspection or not? My thinking is not. For I can't hang the light fixtures before the sheet rock goes on. Or do do I just run the wires to ...

Running natural gas line for a dryer

I will need to run a 1/2 inch copper line to the area where my clothes dryer will eventually be moved to. Will I need a special back flow type valve or something similar, attached to the line before the gas valve is attached to the line?
Or will all I need is the gas shut off valve?

Re: What style of freeze proof water faucet should I use?

Great! thanks Shannon! Now these examples now have me wondering just how long is that pipe? Looking at the images on eBay, it looks to be longer than the 2x4 wall stud will make the wall, thus it would protrude into the interior room. Am I correct? And that space will be occupied by the clothes wash...

What style of freeze proof water faucet should I use?

I'm wanting to install a new outdoor hose faucet on my house, where there never was one before. The water line feeding it will be 1/2 inch PEX and coming from a heated living space, actually my new laundry room. The line will pass through a 2x4 wall and 1/2 inch OSB, and vinyl siding on the outside....

I'm plumbing an addition to my home. The only water connections will be for a clothes washer, and gas clothes dryer, and a utility tub. Do I need to actually connect the PEX water lines to my existing PEX water lines prior to my plumbing inspection? Or do I just have to have the PEX lines run where ...
