comment How to drain a free standing bathtub
You mean a lint filter on the output of the drain and have it drain the water directly on the floor?

comment How to drain a free standing bathtub
It is already somewhat wetroom (the whole floor is slopped to the shower drain),, but I think just dumping it directly on the floor would be too messy. Especially when leaving the tub and risking a fall.

comment Using a off-the-shelf pressure gauge to measure water pressure
Not in US. Here there is little variety in hardware in general. Also, there are very few large stores like HomeDepot, Lowes, and the like.

So I'm probably fine using that for water, right?

comment Using a off-the-shelf pressure gauge to measure water pressure
Technically I don't think there is a difference in a gauge for gas or water, both are fluid and pressure gauges works by means of a bourdon tube that don't cares which fluid is inside of it. The only caveat would be something that corrodes or reacts with the bourdon tube, but then this is another problem.

Attached to a metal frame, double sliding doors, I'm in southeast Brazil, so sub tropical climate.

comment How to prevent expansion on wood block wall/door
The panel would be attached to a metal frame. So adding to the plywood stability only the wood would "move". Actually, thinking about it, cracks aren't probably a problem, but maybe some edge block might fall out.

comment Should you chamfer CPVC pipe before gluing?
The one here I guess is a primer, it seems to make the surface smoother. It is called something like "prep solution".

If I recall correctly, you sand to remove the shine (I guess to make the primer act better). Also the primer doesn't really soften the pipe (unless I really wet it), I think it just cleans the surface

Brazil, I've used PVC for cold water and waste. Now I will do some for hot water.

From what I understand, with PVC you should: cut, chamfer, sand, prime and then glue. BTW, without chamfering PVC I have a hard time inserting the pipe into the fitting.

comment Are those theads setting properly?
@BrownRedHawk Just got the dope, it is very sticky and you are supposed to put it in both male and female threads, wait 3 minutes and then join the pieces. I made a test and will check if it is flexible after curing.
