    The installation instructions call for a field installed trap, I don't see the problem here....


    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Especially when there's no trap on the drain.

    Yeah, it's a good thing rain doesn't do that...or snow. Probably better off for the roof that he did that contraption.

    That is a F up code that the drain can't be on a roof. What about rain?

    Those drains are so bad he is lucky the RTU didn't flood and have water damage in the office below.
    I have seen a RTU running while they where sanding drywall block up the filter and freeze up the RTU and run all Weekend and flood inside the office and cause 10,000$ in damage.
    So is that a Real code that it can not be on the roof ?

    why not just run the drain over to the gutter?

    Somewhere in that building a sink is not draining properly. They'll call a plumber and he'll find that crap drain line and then it will be draining onto the roof.
