    This is pretty hideous . .

    Strolling across a mall roof to my equipment i couldn't help but notice this brand new WIC & WIF install at another store. Im not big on precharged line sets for this reason alone . . . The extra .... I'm not certain what the instructions say but id think they wouldn't want it up here if even having this much left. Ehhh what do i know. At least they tried to keep the freezer extra out of direct sunlight lol. Hey if I'm wrong about the location i still think it looks like SH!T.

    Looks like another "do it yourself" or even a "side job" from a rookie helper.

    yea, it looks like crap, at least they didn't stand the roll up.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Copper thieves would probably pass out if they saw that.

    The Scotsman install manual tells you to roll it up like that freezer job. Personally, i'll cut and braze.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    but leaving it outside on the roof? Maybe above a ceiling .... Here's a screen shot from an old q model mani manual which is what id think they should all be like. But what do i know. I agree cut it & only leave enough behind machine for a service loop. Im not sure what mani recommends now or others

    My friend was looking for a precharged line set because the a-coil his dad gave him had the Aero-Quip fittings on it. I called all my suppliers and found none available. Some had no idea what I was talking about, others had small sets for (as stated) ice machines.

    I honestly wonder how the oil return is and as far as that aspect if it runs fine, or has no oil in the compressor half the time.

    It doesn't take long at all run lines, cut lines at roof, swag and/or use a coupling, braze, vacuum, vapor charge lineset, keep copper to use at another job.

    When I went to the mani class, the guy even said, "Cut the lines to length and keep the leftover copper as a gift from us to you."
