The rare case of Colin doing something he was actually trained to do- Installing pipes.
@colinfurze will you make an underground hot tub
I was just thinking that lol
colin the cable of the light will break from the heat cycling
@K1lostream that is so true
I noticed he is an actual Plummer 5sec into the vid 😂Didn't know that was his actual profession before
The first thing I've seen him do in years that he's actually qualified to do!
Makes me uncomfortable
It's not the fact that the whole tunnel and bunker is impressive, but how clean and professional it all looks. Alot of care and time is going into it and it shows.
Quality work Colin!!!
Colin’s heating bill, the gov 👀 that looks cozy 😂
Not a push fit in sight…..nice!
Those plumbing skills, i wish i had those, even if its just for connecting two pipes. Looks amazing!
3 bed, 2 bath house. 1 car garage. $1,500,000Added benefits: shopGardenFireman’s poleunderground bunkerUnderground tunnel from house, to shop, to under ground bunker.20’ Christmas treeJust the usual 😂😂
It must be nice when Colin gets to use his old training for something, I'm always amazed at all the skills he's picked up with being a full time youtubers.
The contrast between the wall and the copper is quite nice
I agree. That copper just sings!
@David Knowles you could clear lacquer it if the lacquer was heat tolerant
@sosnax1 Is there any kind of coatings that can prevent this and still keep it a copper colour?
Of course as a plumber the copper is isolated from the steel. :)
for sure but thats gonna last a few days without constant polishing
Love how you put genuine effort in to make things look nice, I know it's your house but top job, inspiring
Searching for those comments "pretty good plumbing for a Clip-Sharer" 😂
"OOh it is lovely and warm down here"🤣Colin's neighbours: "What's he doing now?"
he reached magma already
Its amazing what you are doing mate.. I love that fact that just late in your carrier you can use this to not only, spend a lot of time on a project which constitutes as video content. Have complete freedom in live to dedicate time towards this project allowing you to spend more time at home with the family as well as allowing you to focus on any more buisness ventures and just plan or be more involved rather then just headed the the next project on Clip-Share. And all together while teaching new skills and building work ethic by doing this, you make the property extremely valuable when you move out. Its very cool. I don't mean to say to much else but just over all I think Its a very cool, smart, and Hard project you started.. but good luck with jt.
I thought “that’s some fine ass diy work”Then I remembered he’s actually a plumber
Same here. Took me a second to remember 😅
Dude... I've seen this short like 20 times... I hope the tunnel series never ends!!!It's so enjoyable!
This is beautiful workmanship. You make it look so easy Colin! How did you connect the right angle bend you couldn’t reach to heat and still make a watertight seal?
"I suppose I would've made quite a good plumber"Also colin: I AM a plumber
Not an ounce of negativity with this guy along that other guy that does the primitive technology
In 50 years we'll all be watching an elderly Furze making video's on adding a monorail to his underground city.
Space X will have snapped him up by then, to terraform the moon.
Teleport system from bits and pieces he has laying about.
to think he hasn't developed anti-aging by then, you foolish boy. He'd be in his 20's still.
Love to see Colin in Action ! Craftsmanship at its finest 🤘🏼
Im a licensed plumber here in the US and I say you did a BEAUTIFUL job on that copper. Most plumbers cannot do aesthetically pleasing copper work.
When Colin has an EPC (energy performance certificate) done on the house the inspector is going to have fun working out the heat loss on the tunnel extension that’s now part of the house heating system!
I love the way you polish the exposed copper. Beautiful job Colin as always 👍
Nice pipe work. Perhaps you should consider a career in plumbing? :P
@Crazyscarecrow all piping is prone to bursting if it freezes
He probably makes 60x of what he would have made as a plumber on youtube. I think the tunnel proves that 😂😂
@MrMotoMike I did indeed come up with the username lol
@iWin Rar his dad is plumber
@Mr J it more or less turns green and dissolves when in contact with some forms of older insulation. It will literally disintegrate if used for drain lines on tankless non condensing water heaters . Lines connected to close loop recirculation systems can put pin holes all over the pipes . Alot of the deterioration is due to source water .
I’m a plumber too and I wish my solder joints looked that good. It’s nice to see Colin’s old career making a cameo!
Your ability to impress just never ceases! Do you think you could do a short on how you got permits/council approval for folks that might want to do something similar?
This man never ceases to amaze me the amount of know how you have to have to get half of what he's done accomplished
When can we expect to see ‘Part 9’ of the underground 🚋 tunnel alignment to the bunker? I’m so eagerly, eagerly desperate to see it, Colinfurze…
That looks actually nice Colin! Do you have some kind of experience with plumbing?
The amount of skills you have had to exercise to do this is incredible. Good on you, man.
Interesting fact any geothermal expert can confirm: Around 7' under ground the ambient Temps will always be around 55-63°F. It will be extremely affordable to heat that tunnel to the point doing an air exchange down there would be more affordable than heating directly into his home. That said, modifications would be needed including insulating the shed lid
Dang, even the solder joints on the copper look amazing!!! Great work, Colin. Perhaps, he'll sell tickets to the Colin Furze museum.
Wow that looks really good! Sometimes I forget Colin used to be a plumber, the clean spacing and layout add so much to something that at its core is really simple.
@Eyes 0pen So many people with nicer piping at home!
Can you imagine if he had never decided to give up plumbing?
From one plumber to the other. Well done sir. Beautiful pipe work. You soldier like a magician. Plumbed like a master.
Fair play with the tidy copper work. Love the sets over the steelwork on the way down
I love the esthetic of the naked copper pipes… personally, I’d worry about accidentally banging into them and creating a leak. Nicely done.
I'm liking the decision to keep the pipes exposed. Gives a nice look. Well done for hiding the wiring though 👌
Despite it now having central heating that tunnel is still the coolest thing ever.
That is hydronic heat not central heat
Dad? How'd you get out?
Beautiful pipe bending! Recently started learning this. It’s not easy😅
Fantastic plumbing. Love the soldering joints!
how much do you think your house has increased in value since you've added the bunker and tunnel?
Colin, Beautiful and professionally installed. I would be concerned about inadvertently damaging the pipes because they are so "proud." For example, a heavy push cart accidentally running into it.
This made me realize the tunnel could use a LOT more copper accents. Looks beautiful with the steel.
And some brass
@jengo man clear coat
@jengo man even better
Until it goes green :(
I was thinking a professional plumber would have loved to work on this property after being weirded out at seeing a self-dug bunker and then I realised what Colin's former job was haha
Your soldering still pretty good! How long since you whipped in a full copper first fix?
This guy can build, manufacture, weld, install pipes, use CAD, 3D Print, dig tunnels, and basically almost everything else I missed.
Love that little stud welder. Plus that plumbing is spot on brilliant...amazeballs even...😍❤️💯
Wow, his plumbing pipe work looks so beautiful. It's like he was a plumber or something...🤣
Yay for heating!You should call it the Central Heating Line, with London Underground markings and the works
I really like the industrial style the tunnel is taking on and those copper pipes set it off like bling. :D
Very clean job like the entire project. Keep up the amazing work!
I can't believe what I've just seen he was actually back at work for a day lol . Mans a legend wish I had his talents
Colin, you do all the random stuff that kid me dreamed about doing when I own a house. It's fantasy fulfillment watching your work.
This fisher price bunker is cute and all, but collin will never fight back against the powers that be. hes not actually a punk underground helping a militia save britain, his channel just makes him look that way. the police will steamroll his entire larp and everyone knows it. during the pandemic he stood up for nothing, and if the government decided to raid him he would give in just like everyone else. if he had any serious infrastructure hed be forced to lick the boot just to save his channel.
Love the pipey bendy thingy! And your handy with it too. Keep up the good work, awesome videos!
I reckon you could use that loop to cool your house in the summer because the tunnel will be naturally cooler so if you just cycle the water without the heater on then it should equalize the temperatures. (May require additional valves and/or jerry-rigging the pump in the central heating boiler.)
I love the way everything is so rough and yet so clean
Man! What a beautiful job you did! Pipe laying as art form.
Gas/electric prices: *go up 54%*Furze: I should heat the tunnel…
Do you want a cold tunnel
Bet he is actually tapping into the mains gas line. 🤣
@jonathan wright firstly, soldering isn't welding 😜Looking at the clip, it's likely he has a different kind of elbow joint. I think one of the brands stateside is called "shark bite". It's got gaskets and little metal teeth back angled so once the pipe goes in it can't come back out.You'll notice it's a more blocky and dark colored elbow than the ones in the tunnel
Howd you weld the joints inside the cavity?
Broughman9 At this point, I figure it’s the other way around, where he can isolate the house and heat just the tunnel if he wants to. If he ever sells the property, it’ll be as a bunker and tunnel with an included house, everything above ground is a secondary concern.
That black wall goes great with the copper pipes. Look amazing!
You honestly do great work on everything you have created. What profession did you do prior or still do? You're a jack of all traits and maybe a master of some.
he was a plumber before all this haha so it makes sense
That was one of the cleanest installs I've ever seen
As a plumber his work is wicked impressive. If it were to be used for potable water take it easy on the flux.
I should add I have a one pipe system in my house if the teeing off part looks odd to some people lol.
No, add a missile cylo next 😂😂😂
@Sidewinder Forge F'd if the copper decided to freeze and break in winter. Wouldn't it be less costly, labour and easier if it was plexi pipe for that section going back to copper on the ends?I mean other than the asthetic look, copper is no longer the best choice, especially for efficiency (given you need to insulate it to be anywhere near efficient, then you can't see it so what difference is it making at that point beyond it lasting a lifetime, but modern plastics are lasting a lifetime too so it just comes down to cost really...)
@Graham Uk Why don't you have both a gas boiler and hwc? I mean if two people are showering at once, you're going to be in the cold for 17 minutes once they run it out no?
Don’t take much surface area to emit a lot of heat. Depends on how much flow and temp of water. Hope he has a outdoor reset control for the mild times. 3gpm and 125f on the snow melt work great this winter. Then again we only hit like 3in a hour for a short burst. All through pex-c barrier.
@Brad Griffin Hot water. Large buildings use steam.
nice job - the copper pipes even look great against the dark metal backdrop.
Clean copper work, Colin. Do you have backflow device protection near your meter?
The fact the he is still adding thing to the tunnel is just amazing because other would have stoped when they finished so that just is amazing and he doesn’t give up
You know from the list of all the things Colin has done over the years (pyrotechnics, jet engine manufacturing, mining, bmx enthusiast, youtuber, Wearer of Ties & Shirts, etc) I completely forgot he was a plumber 😂
Colin, I would absolutely love to see more footage of this. This could have been a whole video. Looks fantastic!
Colin, you made history and we like it! Heating a self made tunnel, totaly bunkers.
Your brave with the price of gas and electric going up adding additional heating, fair play my friend x
brilliant adding essential heat to a underground tunnel with zero insulation.Not even counting this surrounding Earth/soil, The thermal mass of the metal tunnel and concrete is significant.Also being underground, the tunnel will never drop below freezing But instead probably hover around 60°. No matter how hot or cold it is outside
I know it was probably built just for fun, but wouldn't an internal system that can't be tampered with from the exterior be idk much "safer" I guess? Or something in the event of a natural disaster of sorts? I don't know if it makes sense, I love your channel btw ❤
And the award for the most patient person of the year goes to….. Colin’s wife! Well done, hard earned! ⭐️ 🏆
He has a wife?
@Frosties Doodles and Coloring Pages I’d say more like 200 tonnes
Mrs furze goes missing about the time secret tunnel and two tonnes of concrete turn up 🤔
This has been a three year process!
It will take a ludicrous amount of time to get your tunnel up to temperature, but once achieved it should stay like that pretty much forever.
I wonder, since it's in the ground and the openings are inside, isn't it usually somewhat warm (10-15°c) in there? Without the heating?I mean, in the dead of winter, would it freeze there? Or be 5°c, or 10?Also definitely cool in summer I think, that's nice.
Skill level is unreal !! 😮I’ve watched 5x still just shaking my head !! Can honestly say after watching this i need some more practice !
Great plumbing skills there! Keep an eye on your boiler pressure
Colin, you know if you dig deep enough, you could use the heat from the earth’s core
I didn't know you could bend hard copper! I learned something. Thanks!
I hope you plan to install A/C as well seeing as underground can get very hot too!
this guy is a legend..nearly 3 times the subs of russel brand..insane..these youtube stars make more money than tregular tv actors on a yearly contract.he should be on mainstream too..i do love building projects as opposed to vehicles..tunnels are like the ultimate den/command centre/shelter/prepper..i bet you wont see loo rolls in bulk down there..lol
Functionality aside, I like the industrial aesthetic it adds to it. Makes it seem like a proper bunker that "experts" would price gouge some rich dude or the government to manufacture.
I mean.... If he hadn't started this Project like 3 years ago I'd say it's the perfect timing...He even got the Bunker all set and ready!
Looks very cool, you planning on covering the pipes at all though? Can see little fingers and hot pipes becoming a bit of an issue... XS
Look at that fit and finish! My god, it's like you used to be a plumber in a past life or something! ;)
I work in HVAC, in my state (hi from the states!) We handle hydronic systems instead of the plumbers. I have to say very neat pipework.
Dude you're an amazing plumber honestly some of the cleanest work I've seen and I know some cocky plumbers
Damn that looks a lot nicer than most professional HVAC and plumbers do. I might tip my hat to you sir. That looks great
That's some darn nice looking copper pipeing Sir!Makes me wanna use that for a PC!
Collin furze as a plumber this is genius good job keep the tunnel videos coming 👍
Replace the stairs with a lift, you are only delaying the inevitable 😉
Not really space for it but a Paternoster lift would be incredibly epic.
Use a heavy truck wench to lift a platform on rails, boom, elevator
A fireman's pole would be great
@batt3ryac1d he might some day but not a traditional one i doubt
I bet making a lift that small safely would be hard.Especially cause he's got kids don't want anyone jamming fingers into something.
Is there a chance of the steel and copper reacting electrically? Would it be an idea to sleeve the copper as it passes through the brass brackets?
Dammit I just cannot get enough of this project! Keep em coming Furze!
I'd bet if Colin was main contractor on the Fehmarnbelt tunnel build reaching from Denmark to Germany, it would be done by now, and include those green speedboost arrows for a convenient lightspeed travel experience.Colin Furze is the Chuck Norris of building. Amazing projects 🤘🏻😁🤘🏻
I like the quality and perfection of your craftsmenship!
If one really applied themselves for a 90 day apprenticeship with Colin Furze, one would be unstoppable.
Statistically, 1 in 80,000 would attempt tunnelling to Sweden.
Definitely wear hearing protection working down there mate. I can’t imagine how loud some of the tools could be. Like an impact.
I'd love to see the building permit applications he's filled out over the years lol
Nothing more beautiful than well-soldered copper.
