    This is a job I piped to show the boys how it is done. Now if we could only get the electricans to learn how to run conduit we would have a nice looking job.

    Very nice job,

    Thumbs up

    I agree! Nice piping job. Too bad the electricians aren't up to snuff though. Shouldn't that be EMT(my bag, rigid, you're right piper) with weather-tight fittings instead of weather-tight flex, and with the same supports, (unistrut), like you have? Time to sub-out different electricians I'd say! With your quality, I bet you have sight-glasses right before the TEV's too.

    Looks good! The roof staying in the units in the back ground?

    What was done to help from the crushing next winter!?


    On the first units, where was the line set running before? Couldn't use the same set?

    Nice piping job of course. Try to teach the electricians to pick-up their trash too.

    Really. I just noticed that was the same job as the beer cans in the other thread. Or is that just job security

    Isn`t that the same place where the snow crushed the units last winter?

    Nice work. I started putting the filters inside a few years back.

    JW Harris he is the man. James is right it is Staybrite. There was a good reason for using this low temperature silver. Since this was a replacement system the existing lines had oil in them.

    So even thought we tried to wipe out the oil the best we could I didn't want to take the chance of igniting the oil. This would have created more contaimination than it was worth.

    I would always use Silfos for discharge lines. But Staybrite is perfectly acceptable for refrigeration lines. Read the specifications for it. It should not be confused with 50/50 or 95/5. When I was a kid we put in whole supermarkets using this stuff.
