Not bad...I just don't care for the metal tape or blue tape....but in a pinch I would use purple tape :D
Big improvement. Why pull out discos on a comm job?
Does Illinois even inspect jobs like this?
I wouldn't install the condensers that close even if the mechanical inspector said it was OK, because American Standard doesn't want them that close together.
When I get the building finished, I will post some pictures, I am doing more than just the mechanical on the job I am doing a complete level III renovation/addition, so far I have pulled about 21 permits for this job and it does not include the subs permits like the roofer and the electrician.
We have had about 15-20 inspections so far and no red tags or correction notices, the building inspector has asked for more details to be added to the plans and the plumbing inspector eliminated a dry vent at 1st floor rough in, even though it was on the plans.
Bwally was asking what I was thinking, your response shows you may be thin skinned. You posted on the wall of pride, you should expect some feed back. So, here comes some feed back ... you are wearing sneakers, that's a big no-no here, you have pipes that apparently do levitate as there is no support for them. The disconnects are mounted on the service panels, some stretched tight, the refrigerant lines are not straight and there are a lot of lazy bends. What is with the metal tape, I see a bunch of guys here do that, to me it looks terrible. This is just me, if I was doing the job I would have wood on hand to enlarge the platforms so I had more room, after all they are re-roofing and could roof a bigger platform no problem. Work under those conditions is tough, so some stuff gets not done the way you would like and that sucks. I have been on similar jobs and know it is frustrating, to much mess, to many guys, not enough time, budget constraints, to hot, to cold, to many bossís. At the end it is done and they are running OK so all is well.
LOL at the metal tape liquid line support! :D
IMO, the minimum would have been wire ties.
How come some units have filter driers and some don't?
Like others have said....you left it in better shape than you got it.
Or is better than it was when you got there, good enough?
Running the condenser's so close together is not going to allow them to work as efficiently as they were designed to, they will work but at reduced efficiency and possibly lower service life of the equipment.
Looks like a nice job to me. I would be shocked if the distance between the units had any affect on the performance. Laughable.
better than when you found it but still a lot of room for improvement
One reason why I have so many licenses is because I got tired of arguing with subs about the proper way to do a job, many of the subs think if you can slide it by the inspector all is good.
Units that close will definately affect performance and could shorten the equipment life, but the contractor has already cashed the check and will not have to deal with it, so all is good, right??:rolleyes:
