    Double liquid line drier.

    Always see that on Trane / Am St.

    One guy told me that was a strainer inside the C/U so an external was needed.

    Riiiiiiight.


    Perhaps not wall of pride but have seen MUCH worse...

    Where I come from, this doesn't count as a Wall of Pride photo. What's with the wood support under the air handler?

    There is rubber pad on top and bottom of the pressure treated wood.

    Primary Drain is ran then secondary has a float switch, the pan has got an auxilary on it, and a float switch as well...
    More than enough protection there.

    I know. I feel bad for ripping on it myself. I'm really surprised nobody ripped my own install. I ain't even got a drain pan underneath it.

    I have been installing for 35 years and this is the fastest and most Profesional Sling I have ever used.

    Completely adjustable, and ready to receive any size unit in less than 10 minutes.

    Same cost as Strut/rod nuts bolts and washers.
    Now that is cool metal sling, never seen one in Texas. I have been in industry for 35 years also..

    That looks great but very rarely do I come across an attic with enough hieght to use something like that. Even my help couldn't complain about getting mastic on thier hands trying to seal the bottom of the unit....Awwww!! lol

    I am in the south east swamp. South Carolina. A lot of homes here are old with very low and wide with a low roof line. Usually I build a 2x4 platform with 3/8 plywood, set it on top of the truss and screw it down. I use to use the old metal pan with 4 in. risers but have recently started using plastic secondary. All this usually leaves me about 6 to 8 in. above the unit. I try to talk them into a pkg. whenever I can.I dont get many new installs, mostly changeouts.

    Looks like you've got a lot of room to play in the snow!

    Factory installed LL drier, so the second isn't needed.
    As for the 4x4's, I'm pretty sure your local American Standard supply house carries the styrofoam blocks that are 4 feet long, 4"x4".
