    Common sense isn't very common anymore.

    Yes, that is a pre-charged lineset. That's what it is supposed to look like. The install manual that came with that unit would have said to not cut the lineset, and to leave it coiled up near the condenser. It's not lazy to read and follow the install instructions, like that guy has done.

    I agree it looks stupid, and I can see how it might be hard for a true professional who cares about what they are doing to leave it like that. I would not get mad at someone for cutting the lineset and making it shorter and making it look nice, but it is what it is.

    It kind of reminds me of a gas piping job I did several years ago. We had to run gas piping from the basement of a 2 story commercial building, up to the roof. My boss had just found out about CSST (Gastite) and wanted to try it out. I was unrolling it across the roof and connecting it to rooftop units. After I unrolled it I strapped it to a bunch of pipe support blocks and spent a lot of time trying to straighten it out and make it look as nice as possible. Right after I got it as straight and nice looking as I could, a big gust of wind came and blew it all around into a big wavy mess again. Half of the pipe blocks weren't even touching the roof anymore. The stuff was so light weight, that there wasn't much I could do. I just threw my hands up in the air and gave up. My boss saw the job that I did, and thankfully, that was the last time we ever used that stuff on a roof.

    I keep waiting for the day that someone will put a picture of it here in the WOS.

    Looks like its on a roof so maybe not as big of a deal, but wouldn't that just make damage or theft inevitable if installed ground level?

    Could've made a better stand and tucked it under there, the old pallet wood platforms are a nice touch though I guess.

    Thats an LDL lineset. Ive also seen 30 ft of 1/4" copper liquid line wadded up in the attic on really old split systems and was told by an old timer once that it was the "metering device" of its time.

    Looks like a hoshizaki remote condenser with a pre charged line set. I just did one similar to that and was told not to cut the lines. Plus it rush, to get ice machine up and running. Still when they close this winter for a day I will shorten the line sets making sure that the ice bin is full before I start.

    Only looks familiar because i'v seen it a few times! Not that big of a deal, The manufacture tells you to coil access on roof. Nothing to do with lazy!

    They could've tried harder to coil it up. Maybe even a few wire ties. Did one like that in a residence many years ago. Pre Charged line set
    and was told not to cut it. Customer called us back and when I told her that is what you are supposed to do she presented us with literature stating that there is nothing wrong with cutting it. Boy were we red faced she knew more about it than us. Never coiled one up again. I never even buy pre charged line sets any more.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!
