    around here that vent would be too close to an electric source to pass code but nice work I agree with the 1'' filter it just makes it simple for the h/o also nice to get to go back and charge to clean the coil every 2 years

    They make clear primer for PVC. If inspectors did not require the purple so they could see that primer was used then I did not use the purple primer. Some installers are good at applying the purple primer. Some installers are complete slobs and get it all over the place.
    Signature on hold. Trying to find a real Jefferson quote I like. Others here have bogus Jefferson quotes too.

    Did you have to do it so neat? How are we going to pick it all apart, I am sure some one has already done this for you?

    From the looks of it, I bet the electrician would have used Romex. I think our friendly HVAC installer used the MC cable?

    If you use hard conduit that is all good, but then you need to stock THHN - no romex in conduit!

    If you would have turned the cased coil around, you could have had an even shorter lineset. Possibly a new world record, LOL!

    Very nice. I would be proud to have that in my home.

    I did a R/R on a system recently and we tossed the old 4" filter rack and built the return boot with a 1" filter rack inside. The homeowner was ecstatic. He said the 4" filters cost a fortune and he hated it with a passion.

    That conduit is classified as liquid tight non-metallic conduit. Only thing not liquid tight are the fittings at the box, and if IIRC, the make water/explosive proof fitting for it also.

    Are you confusing BX/MX/AC for liquid tight non-metallic?

    Very correct.
    Now, how many HVAC/R techs do you think can explain the meanings of those odd letters on wires?

    Hint, +15, +15, thermoplastic, nylon
