Irish Plumbing

  I love traveling. Our most recent trip took us to Dublin, Ireland with Peirce Phelps, one of our largest vendors. They do a spectacular job of treating their customers to wonderful trips and events. This one was no exception. When I travel, I love taking pictures of beautiful vistas, historic sites and yes…..weird plumbing and HVAC stuff.   ireland-1

I love the elevated tanks for urinals and water closets in Ireland. I assume their water pressure is low which requires the tank high on the wall but, in any case, it makes for an interesting picture. I suppose I probably overdo the whole plumbing thing from the Emerald Isle but when you’re drinking Guinness throughout the day, it tends to cross your mind every so often:-)
Here’s a picture of the northern Coastal Causeway that just doesn’t do this beautiful country justice. ireland-4
