My wife just got home from the hospital with an oxygen concentrator
and some tanks.
ISTM that the best setup for us would be to keep the concentrator
upstairs in the bedroom- and run a second line through the floor to
the living room below.
The guy last night says they are made to run 24/7. I'm thinking a 2
way valve and some sort of grommet to go between floors should do me.
The valve is no rush- I'll pick that up online and just plug/unplug in
I'd like some feedback on the 'floor grommet' first. the floor
upstairs is a floating laminate floor over 1x8 shiplap. [it is a 100+
yr old house] There are 2x8 joists- and 1/2" sheetrock below.
In my mind I'm picturing 2 pieces of 'pipe' with flattened/flared
ends- drill the hole, and insert from both sides.
Is there such a thing? Or do I buy 2 grommets and a piece of pipe?
This will be more or less permanent-- If we're 'lucky'- we'll be using
this setup for a few years. OTOH- when it is no longer necessary,
it would be nice to leave and easily plugged pair of holes.
