I look at it a bit differently. Let's say that 6 of those pipes go to 2 bathrooms. 2 for toilets and 2 for cold water and 2 for hot water. You take a shower and then you get out and shave. You just let water run for the shower until it got hot and then you also run the water at the sink so you can shave. Lots of wasted water and electrical energy in doing that. Run a 3/4 line to the bathroom and split it into two 1/2" lines and the water at the sink only needs to run for a few seconds.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I thinks it's a manifold for HW heat...

I love to see parallel pipes and cables. Many years ago I had an outdoor storage water heater replaced under it's five year warranty and the guy who changed them over found that the model had changed slightly and the cold feed wasn't quite long enough so he bent the 1/2" pipe to an angle. I eventually paid a real plumber to re-pipe it.

I bet he was getting paid by the hour, plus a markup on materials cost.

A buddy of mine sent me this via e-mail and my reply was exactly the same, organized and clear and easy to follow, I guess a plumber could call this a work of art or eye candy, I just call it professional !

I used to know this Hungarian guy (since passed) that regularly polished all the exposed copper plumbing in his furnace room. Again, in his case it was beautifully laid out.
