    Thumbs down What a deal!!

    I bid this job a few month ago, WI cooler and Freezer, of course the low bidder got it?

    1 Condensing units look like a train.
    2 Messy joint, with flux running all over.
    3 Reduced tubing between Evap and Cond.
    4 Site glass indicator should be green or yellow, was black in this case?
    5 Nice way to terminate drain out side of freezer, no water ever comes out any ways?
    6 Evap over flows, no heat tape on drain tube.

    Drain line doesn't need heat tape, can't you see he insulated it?

    He prolly called the installer, when the water was leaking through the pipe out side of the box to complain? I could just hear the installers reply, "Don't worry, that pipe will stop leaking in a couple of days."

    The biggest problem, is the owner is an Indian Immigrant, so communication is almost impossible. He only under stands the bottom line. No clue of value.
