    We can't find our regular repair guy.

    Long time till I found something worth posting. Dispatch sends me a new customer that our outside salesman found. Words could not describe what I was thinking. This is at a health care facility. Low bid always gets the job, this time I will not fix low bid. I refused to fix or bid replacement. Considering contacting the Health department. Many hacks. The more I looked around the worse it got. Attic access is more than 100ft for the unit,

    Not to worry...

    The owners will find another hack to do a worthless job... and they probably would not have paid your price anyway.

    I've run in to this a lot, where the "Good Ole Boys" run things.

    I wouldn't repair any of that work, that was an Obvious Code Violation, but insist upon any repairs be done according to the Current Code.

    I'd also ask to see the Prints & Permits, & Proof of "Approved Inspections" carried out, that were employed for that Current Mess, & if they can not provide them, ... Then tell them, that they are not "Grandfathered".

    Only way I would touch that:
    Remove both supply and return plenums and EVERYTHING between them... and rebuild the system from scratch.
    With a clause that said ANY duct work found lacking... must be replaced on an AWA (additional work authorization).
    In other words, an open ended contract.
    Including permitting and inspections.

    If they would not sign, then they need to find someone else.

    RUN! RUN FAST!! I would tell them everything needs to be replaced "correctly" and as stated they will sign their first born over to me with payment before I touch a screw.
