    Nice clean install.
    The only thing that sticks out is the electrical on the Condenser. No other way to do it?

    The pic is a little deceiving. The linset only has about 1 inch of dirt on top of it.

    The disconnect is from the old unit that I took out. I offered to install a new one but the home owner told me to just use the existing one.

    It looks real nice, I bet the customer was happy. Why didnt you go straight up and over with the gas pipe, whys it wrapped around the vent?

    Not a big deal but I always like to see any wire outside going to the condensing unit run such as it causes a drip leg for the rain to run down it so the water hits the ground and not the unit.

    The straight run from the disconnect down to the condensor is going to cause the rain water to follow the line to the unit and collect there, which looks like it's going to be right over the service ports.

    If it's looped down first the rain water will drop down off the lowest point of the loop.

    It's pretty though.

    guessing he used a pre-made whip. Sometimes you just have to use what is given to you though its not what should be there

    You mean like this.......Also the discharge line is anchored to the suction line. Pic was taken before that was done.

    You mean like this. No the bottom of the sealtight isn't over the service valves. The discharge line has been anchored to the suction line. Pic was taken before that was comleted.
