What Is This

Whenever there is little or no time left in my day, and a quick post is needed, I take a look at the latest photos on my phone. Many times when busy, I will snap a picture of something as a reminder.

This one was on my camera, taken yesterday.


What is this



Working with a buyer, we put in an offer on a home. Of course, we asked about the above mess of tubing. Don't worry we will be checking this if and when we get to the inspection stage.

Do you know what this is?

Would you like to guess?

I think they are hot water supply lines to distribute hot water throughout the home.

Morning Margaret.

My WAG would be either a water supply system.  Otherwise, not a clue

Good morning Margaret. A version of individual plumbing supply line control not well executed? Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland there's always a surprise around every corner.... that could be an antiquated irrigation system!!!

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - I will speculate that this might be for the outdoor sprinkler system.

Margaret it looks like some kind of plumbing manifold and yes it looks like a mess.
