Water system diagram

Anyone got a nice system design they'd be willing to email me? getting ready to put in the system next month and need to buy parts. would be going into a 66 GT with a non-pressurized fresh tank. will be using PEC for piping and wish for something easy to winterize as we live in CT.
thanks, Rob

How about one for a 67 GT?

This is not exact for a 66, but it should help.

If the old system is still in place, make plenty of drawings before you tear it out. Some re-design is necessary, because PEX fittings take up more space than copper fittings. That's fairly easy to do if you understand how the old system worked.

System is no longer in place. GT is gutted to the ribs. So have the ability to install what I wish. We're also rebuilding the front twin/drop table into a U shape center pole table setup, so will have increased area under the seats for water system and storage.

The drawing above helps fill in details of what shold be there as it is very close to original.

Know there are some new designs out there that take into account better blow down, easier draining of system and new technology pumps.

Thanks for your help!

Here is what I did with my Argosy. I wanted all the valving in one location and did not want to disconnect and reconnect the water heater, just drain it and put it in bypass. Did not like the idea of having to get under the bed to access the valve that you close when on city water.
