Well, putting it in the garage seemed like the best use. I've thought about it for a few weeks, trying to develop a plan of attack. The PO knocked a horrible hole through a block to get power out to the
old pool so I just used a punch and hammer to open up the hole till a 1 1/2" 90* fitting would fit in it snug.
I mounted the vacuum to the wall with tap-cons and started working with the pipes. I figured the gravity would pull stuff down if I didn't do a loop above the horizontal line for each drop so I wound up with this.
The wall with the vacuum will have another drop near the back and then contine around to the back of the garage near the work bench. The 90* in the top of the picture will cross over the shop to the opposite wall and have two drops on it. 1/2 way across it will have a drop through the front between the doors with an outside drop to help with cleaning out the cars. Each drop will have a power switch on 4-way wiring for easy operation and use Shop-vac branded hoses and accessories so finding parts won't be difficult.
It should be really nice to have once I get it all set up. I will probably have around $150 in pipe, wiring, switches and accessories when I'm done.

That was a good idea. It is always nice finding a use for something that has been just sitting around. Plus it will be nice for you not to have to drag a shop vac around anymore. Good job

I've got to buy some more piping to finish the plumbing so it will be ready use.
