    Adapter Curb.....Check.



    Filtered outdoor air....Check.


    Better get the maintenance contract and include new flex every fall. You just can't make this stuff up.

    Man, that is a deluxe install there, has a filtered fresh air intake and all, what are you complaining about?

    Looks like the kind of crap I found on some K-Clinics in the DFW area, only the contractor they were using dressed it up with a protective enclosure around the flex duct......made of ductboard....
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Ill be, I have a radio tower site set up similar to that, except flex goes in
    the side of the building where a small window used to be. The flex had
    completely shreded (took about 12 years though). They did not want
    metal duct, so I had to put new flex up with aluminized exterior.

    But it's plastic, that makes it weatherproof doesn't it?

    Residential version

    I seen the same deal with a residential unit. Someone put a self contained trailer unit on a house via flex ran through a basement window. At least the put a damper to shut of any air flowing outside in the winter. We removed the unit and put in a split system

    At least they used a top of the line RTU... NOT!

    Maybe that was one of those "DIY kits" from the internet?
