    Dad told him to lay off the posting of BS, then he went into the General forum to bypass the no DIY rules and gave step by step instructions to an AOP-guy.

    thekux can log-in and read the basic forums but cannot PM, cannot post, and had his Pro membership revoked.

    Thanks! I have tried over the years to become more and more proficient and consistent with my start up procedure including taking various duct static readings. Not sure which one you're asking about, the last one in the original post or the last picture I posted from my buddy's job, they both had very acceptable tesp thanks to proper sizing and decent duct design (at least on my buddy's job) but I cannot attest to the total equivalent length calculations. Can't be much as it's basically an extension of the blower cabinet and only improves airflow.

    Because he gave kux (it means sh!t) advice and gave everyone the kuxs.

    No wonder, he had issues and just came here just to put turds in the punchbowl.

So I submit for your criticism a few jobs from recent months. I will have more to come but these are just a few that jumped out at me first.
    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    Taylor,

    In Your first pick, .... Does your Local Authority allow the condensate to be inserted in to the floor drain?

    Down here, Hamilton & Clermont Counties want an "air gap".

    And I agree with everyone else, ... Your Metal Work is OutStanding!

    In that last Pic,... Post#11, .. That Drier Vent has got to be causing issues. SMH.

    Long time no see Taylor. I see you haven't lost your touch, everything looks great.

    How do you like the new S9 furnaces?

    Thanks everyone, yes it's been a while but we've been busy and life's been busier! David, technically there is still an "air gap" in that drain. That's a project the homeowner is going to be addressing. All of his floor drains are old bell traps and he's going to update them soon. The 90 is just pushed on to keep it in place for now. I actually got a first time request on that job to pressure test the vent pipes as the route they took took would have been quite difficult to replace them. Found one leak on a double 90 but came up with a simple but effective way to do a quick pressure test. Does anyone ever take the time to pressure test vent lines new or reused? Used a test plug on one end and a fernco cap on the other end. Drilled a hole in the fernco cap and made up an adapter to hook up nitrogen. The drier vent you mentioned, yeah, I mentioned that to him. Still dangerous on electric driers but when I see gas driers like that I pretty much insist the customer let me fix it if they aren't capable.

    I'm liking the s9 furnaces. I really like the simplicity of service work on them. If you ever have to change a control board, all you need is a Phillips screwdriver and less than 5 minutes. Had a couple that fell into a board recall, would run a couple cycles then have a flame sensor error. I guess it affected a few boards and a few different furnace makes. Can't wait to try out taking a blower out down the road. Looks like it should be a lot simpler than most others. The biggest con to me so far is needing a spacer for effective installation of an appropriately sized filter. Have only had one situation where I had to compromise and install a 16x25 honeywell media directly to the furnace, but my tesp with filter was still very acceptable so I guess it works, I just don't like doing it. None of the local stores carry the 16x20 cartridges and most of our customers prefer to take care of purchasing filters on their own.

    And more

    This one was at a contractor friend's parents' house. This contractor has done some installs mostly on his own until we partnered up. Funny thing is, general contractor, does top notch work, his hvac installs surpass the quality of most professional companies around here. Had to add my touch with the radius return boot and double radius plenum.
