    Nice repair anyway.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    As already stated, some sheet metal over the opening would do wonders.

    Charged for the gas and thats it. A real close friend bought the house, been empty 3 years, been up there every night after work fixing tons of problems. Wanting to get through this summer. Then its zone time and redo everything. POS install. 4 ton unit. Just want it to last a couple months tops.

    I did block the hole off. Pressures seemed to be pretty normal actually. Lacking in the airflow department inside, but that's due to the morons that think a 5 ton drive will pull thru a 16x25 filter.

    Took me less than an hour to fix it, pressure test, get vac going, put it back together and wash what was left of the coil. It will probably work the rest of the summer. Worth it...

    So what... it had a big hole in it. If I was in your friends shoes I would be really thankful that you are not scared of a little dog piss and could get her going to get me by. And not force me into a new unit. Way to go!

    Only for a friend...and a good one at that. Nice work.

    Speaking of piss, specifically the amonia therein; I am beginning to see the relationship between the abundance of animal urine in the carpets and in the air (at least I certainly hope it's animal urine...can't be sure with some of the places we go into) and the premature deterioration of indoor coils, ignitors etc.

    I'm told I would be surprised if I were to piss in a cup and throw a penny in and let it sit for a few days. I'll take their word for it - my wife is barely tolerant of my work bench in the shop...

    Agreed...summer's almost over....
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    I'm sure they were grateful to get some more use out of it.
