    pitched for proper drainage

    The pitch of the swamper matches the slope on the mountain.
    Effort is the 1st step towards failure.

    Looks like a swamp cooler. Not sure if it is DYI, looks like some sheet metal was formed, unless it was a prefab plenum. At least the house doesn't have a 9/12 pitch!

    Why are all these units on the roof out West? Small yards, theft, just the way business is done? You will not see this in the deep south. Even in hurricane and flood prone areas they are elevated, but not on the roof. I can understand a swamp cooler, but condensing units?

    It's a poor man's cascade system. Pre-cool the air with the first and super-cool with the second?
