    I was tired of filling up a one gallon container to walking it over to fill up our Berkey (first world problem), so I decided to plumb in a pot filler on the side of our cabinet. Worked out great! I'm just learning how to sweat copper, so every time is a learning experience.

    nice job ..the only thing i dont see is a shut off in cabinet before pot filler. so if you have leak or need to work on it you dont have to shut whole house down.

    It does look good but I was thinking along the lines of the fact that the cabinet and water line are now a unit. You do anything with the cabinet the pipe goes with it. But then I suppose you can simply remove the pipe through the floor.

    The ball valve pictured is before the new plumbing. It shuts off the hose spigot on the rear of the house and this new fixture. The main reason for doing this was to bypass the water softener, and the hose bibbs outside are bypassed, so I used it to my advantage. :)

    Yeah, I would just cut it off and cap it in the basement if I didn't need it.
