I'd have to disagree that assbuilts are a waste of time. Somewhere down the line someone, maybe not you but someone will appreciate them. They don't have to be exact to scale drawings but a general idea where lines or things run.

Yes. Jim and I were just talking about that, down the road, the paper trail is invaluable.

I agree and disagree on the as-builts. I don't think they are extremely necessary, but they are appreciated. Especially on larger systems with spread out valves, quick couplers, drains, master valves, etc. But, I can't remember the last time I used or had even seen an as-built drawing. I don't have them for my house, showing where all the electrical or plumbing runs. We just deal with it when the time arises and something needs repairing or added onto.

I do a simple one for every install. Even something as simple as a blowout , one can look at and know best place to park and wheres the clock.
