    Really?

    It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many slash-and-dash artists in our trade! I'm glad I don't have to work with people that do work like that!

    No it's me too.

    What is up with the 4" rise on the condensate drain? Looks to be higher than the discharge out of the unit.

    Am I missing something here?

    ran into this before....where plumbers where contracted to do the piping. The plumbing contractor owner showed up, i gave him a nut driver and asked him to remove the service panel. He took a knee then looked up at me and grinned. they had to re-pipe 4 units. Plumbers just know it is a "magic box"

    That reminds me of something our instructors back at Tech. School would have thrown at us!

    WTF!?!?
    I think I'd wuss out.... refer the customer back to the installing contractor, make them warranty their BS work.
    The views and opinions posted here are my own. They do not reflect the corporate policies of my employer and will most likely get me fired at some point.

    Exactly what I did. They've been back 5 times since then for safety switch lockout problems. I wonder what could be causing the condensate switch to keep turning the compressor off?

    Flat picture, no depth. That's not a T. It's a coupling in front of a 90.
