Where is the Neutral?


In electrical wiring, there is a hot and a cold wire, plus a neutral. How come plumbing does not have a neutral? All sinks, tubs, etc have a hot and cold water spigot. How come none of them have a neutral spigot? Sometimes I'd like water that is neither hot or cold, just neutral. Why does the plumbing code not require all homes to have a spigot for neutral water?

It does. Just like with electricity, the neutral is the pipe with the potential closest to ground.

There is, the DRAIN line. Serves same purpose.
Drain returns used water. Neutral returns used electrons.
They don't call it juice for nothing.

    That's a good comparison. Not technically correct, but it does make it a lot easier to explain.
