    RTU's and Condensers 12" apart

    Went out to the Panhandle of Florida for a little Light Commercial Build Out and was greeted by these.

    That's ridiculous. How much did they have to pay the inspector to let those pass?

    I hear that!!!!! Even a young apprentice would ask "How are we going to put filters in it?"...........Senior Man probably said " That is not my job. only to set it and walk away"

    To make things worse, it is five hours away and I am going back tomorrow to find a leak somewhere in the 100 foot line set because it was flat when I went to do start up.

    I was contracted to tie on to the existing system with my new duct work and reuse equipment.

    Good luck. You deserve every dime they won't want to pay you.

    You want to take the people who did this by the collar and take your 3 pound hammer and explain some common sense to them.

    You contractor types typically sling mud at us maintenance guys. We're typically the ones that get stuck with this 'stuff' to work on.

    Invite the inspector over to the site and ask him for an explanation or a cut.

    That is sad but so true, had me laughing.



    I love it how the heck are you going to troubleshoot that electrical panel/heat etc?

    Not suprised though.
