Laying off inspectors and combining departments to cut cost to keep handout services is going to result in more of this quality of work.
    Whatever inspector had his rubber stamp on it should be fired. A lot of inspectors just don't want to climb up on the roof.

    Be sure to post a pic of the job when complete, would ya?

    well the owner gets what he paid for. I can't believe that's a real installation. How in the hell do people like that get a license or even better a permit to do the work.

    I'm betting the manager had a hand in that POS install.
    I'd also be at the counter- pics in hand, raising all kinds of hell at that mess getting signed off.
    How the hell do you compete against hacks like this when the city signs off on this sort of crap?

    Can you grab some more flex and a beer and a cigar? That unit reminds me of Bender from Futurama.

    I would bet no permit was ever pulled.

    My first thought was Squidward from Spongebob Square Pants cartoon. Then looking again the people eating machine from The War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise.

    Not only expected it to pass, but got it passed.
    If I were the customer, I'd be tempted to sue the inspector just for the publicity, wouldn't care if I won or lost.

    That's the greatest thing I've ever seen!
