    Had a full day

    The service calls were coming in like crazy yesterday. We had a few good ones too.

    Nice storm collar.


    Complaint on this one was the suction line was sweating more than normal. I guess so. lol Needless to say, the unit was over charged. The black spot on the drain pipe was where it was running behind the single wall vent pipe.



    This was the next to last call of the day. Contactor was stuck ("electrician" put in) and condenser wouldnt shut off. Customer was not happy at all with his other work too. lol Somebody knew just enough to make a big mess on this one. There were burnt connections everywhere. I just ripped it all out and started over.


    Nice low pressure switch. They also left the factory drier in place when the compressor was changed out.


    I'm not sure if there was a purpose to their piping method or if they were just trying to make it match the suction line.

    Being just a little OCD myself I can appreciate the idea of matching the lines. :-)

    It worked pretty well when I took it off to hook up the guages. Of course by the time the head reaches 20 psi the compressor would probably be pretty much done.

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    the discharge line needed the extra 2 90s, he had the coupling and extra 90...just needed the markup on the job of those 2 90s that didnt need to be used. I see it all the time,
