    I understand what You are saying Haupt.

    Down here in S.W. Ohio, I've seen many basements, that had "basement water proofing systems" that literally channeled water to a sump pump, installed along the walls, made out of Concrete & Bricks, or other materials.

    Problem is, they did nothing for the water welling up through the floor, & many times this moisture was pulled up in to the furnace/ A.H.

    On each of those Installs, I specifically addressed the "Moisture Problems", & advised the H.O., to contact a Professional, & correct the problem.

    Nice install! Did you miss on your first 2 attempts at locating your line set hole and come out through the siding?
    Just kidding. I would add a bead of caulk across the top and down the sides of the disconnect. If water gets behind there and into your screw/anchor holes and freezes it can loosed up your screws/anchors and the next time you pull out the disconnect, you yank the whole thing off the wall.

    You obviously take great pride in your work. And rightly so.

    As you may have guessed, those holes were present before I arrived, that would be pretty sad. Thanks for the laugh cause it looks exactly as you said. I will keep the disconnect in mind. Thank you.
