This client owns a remote mountain cabin where all the fresh water supply is shut off during the winter season. Another issue of concern was that the water source at the top of the mountain basically "dried' up after a flood, and wasn't all that great the entire summer. The client wanted to have a year round self sustaining water source which would allow them to use the cabin during the winter months.
1. Made sure every tiny hole crack etc....was sealed in the concrete crawlspace.
2. Insulated all the new PVC pipes that attached the water pillow to the copper piping cabin feeds.
3. Installed a williams 14K btu direct vent wall heater that would keep the interior of the cabin at about 36 degrees 24/7
4. Installed a "kill" switch for the on demand water pump in a closet in the living area of the cabin to stop all water pressure if needed.
5. Installed an automatic drain valve as well as a manual drain valve on the feed and return lines to/from the water heater. The automatic drain valve open at the moment you turn the "kill" switch to the water pump. (when this happens it drains less than 1 gallon of water)
In the likely case that they could lose "spring" water for summer or at the extra likely case our spring water time is shortened, they will be daisy chaining another water pillow to the one they have to add 1500 more gallons.
