    10 Ton water vacuum

    This is what happens when you install a 10 ton RTU with 1 - 12"return,

    They could not figure out how it would only leak water only so often into the building, they removed the economizer 3 years ago thinking it was leaking.

    I just got lucky enough to see it suck the water up through the fresh air hood like a water spout even luck to get a little video

    There is no provision for attaching videos. Your best bet is to upload to YouTube or something like that and then link it here.

    if i recall 18" round is good for 3 tons. 6"=1/4 of a ton 8"=1/2 10"=1 12"=1 1/2 . This is all for residential based on about .8 in wc. Commercial is different because you have more static pressure and cfm's. if im wrong please enlighten me!
