    Seems legit.

    Found these two beauties right next to each other, on a commercial install! I didn't realize you could install an RTU on a wooden pallet.

    The PVC is a p-trap for the condensate off the evap coil. It prevents dust from entering a negatively pressurized space. The water plugs the hole for a positively pressurized system so that you don't have what amounts to a 3/4" hole in the supply air conduit.

    You apparently missed the sarcasm dripping off of Snapperheads comment?
