    Got called out to look at a walk in at a gas station and found this gem. We got outbid on the condenser install and this is what they got. See anything missing?

    Evap coil was not changed, and old unit had burnt up compressor.

    Yup, filter driers. They installed the new condenser and put no filters on at all.

    Filter could be out of sight. defiantly should have a suction line FD. Disconnect could be within eyeshot.

    Well they'll be replacing it soon again anyway. Maybe you get the bid next time. Or with any luck a compressor change.

    Checked inside at the Evap. Wasn't touched. They left the old lines to the inside and just brazed new ends at the compressor

    If that's for a walk-in box, there's a lot more missing than just a filter-drier.

    No that's ac for the store. We were just there to look at the walk in. I worded that wrong.

    Probably should have had a cycle switch or some type of pressure control since it was 40 degrees today and running I would guess though.

    I do not see any low voltage wiring... Is it inside the conduit with the high voltage wiring (not legal in my state unless the wire is insulated for high voltage).
