High Mark Plumbing, your reliable plumber in Calgary, is thinking about tiny houses. Some of them are elegant, some quaint and others just look like a good place to call home. But when it comes to plumbing, tiny houses can be a big challenge.
A Tiny House is sometimes classified as an RV, since it is a bona fide living space on wheels. These little houses focus on comfort packed into a small amount of space. Since they are a house, however, they require plumbing – preferably plumbing that can be moved from one place to another without everything shaking apart. According to an article in Plumbing Perspective, plumbing one of these little homes on wheels can be a big challenge. ProPex expansion fittings were used throughout the plumbing system because of their reputation for leak-resistance, combined with AquaPex tubing, which allowed natural bends without having to cut pipe and fit elbows. When fitting adult-size bathroom fixtures into a space that is not much larger than a child’s playhouse, this kind of flexibility is essential. Although these materials are resistant to freezing, they still should be protected with insulation, but should not come in contact with certain types of insulation, which makes a pretty problem when dealing with a tiny space.

Some of them are laid out in a way that makes them easy to work on, while others can be quite a challenge. Those challenges are part of what makes plumbing interesting, however, sort of like one of those wooden puzzle boxes or like a Rubic’s cube.
