    Lightbulb Short 5 inches of 1 1/8 pipe....

    ...but we have a 1.5" of 1 1/8, 2' of 7/8, 2' of 3/4, a 3/4 coupling, some pliers, and half a tube of Silphos!



    Also, that sight glass is not one where deep dark purple is a good thing...

    If that was my work I would have moved the insulation on over from the neighboring line, on second thought, if he left that one uncovered I would hate to see the one he covered up!!!

    I pulled the insulation off of the suction line, it is laying on the ground in the lower left corner of the picture.
    I didn't look under the LL insulation, but I've seem some pretty interesting LL piping in the past too...

    I always thought it funny that the inlet pipe to the service valve is 3/4". In this case, the short piece of 3/4" probably won't affect performance much- but man that is one sloppy job!

    I haven't acquired that technology yet!

    I'm still stuck on figuring out how to get my duct stretcher to work on flex duct....

    Had to finish that day.....there is NO tomorrow. My company would tell me to do that rather than take a little more time and get what you need to do it right. Welcome to my world.......
