    Gawd that looks like sh*t!


    Did you at least laugh when you first saw that mess?



    Looks like some new RUUD units. Whoever did them change outs couldn't clean up the line sets going to them new units at least? WTF?

    If I'm looking at them right, those old units are 25 year plus Lennox with used the "liquid line" as a metering device so the lines were of fixed length. You couldn't shorten them cause the systems wouldn't work then. I have one building left of them and they pretty much look the same with coils of copper sticking up in the air.

    Here's a partial picture of one of them.

    They didn't want to run them close to the roof and create a trip hazzard.

    Never heard of that before. Understandable if that is the case. But the way these are run is still unacceptable.

    Maybe they were going to double as some type of wildlife snare.
