    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    We have a humidifier to repipe. Has been incorrect since it was installed in 2012. Installing contractor fixed it by shutting the supply to it.

    I work in a hospital too. When I get a cold room call, the first thing I have to check is that someone didn't valve off the water to the reheat coil in the vav.

    Then you turn it on something leaks or the valve doesn't work. Thats how alot of maintenance/hvac guys work.

    saw to coveralls and booties and 1st thought was a OR, yep I work in hospital maintenance, at least there is a lot of room to get around. I have seen above ceilings where you just can't get to anything.

    I've seen walls built around VAVs in hospitals. VAVs installed upside down. Fan powered VAVs with sprinkler pipes pushing against the bottom and no access to the top. You need to get creative to work on them sometimes. The tinner who hangs them must have a good laugh.

    Yeah, then I get to cut out a gate valve and propress in a ball valve. Then cross my fingers that the actuator works.

    I have seen the same. They are constantly moving walls around, and I have to figure out which thermostat controls what area. Not to mention I have three different control systems running everything.

    Had a humidifier that the condensate wasnt draining. Ended up cutting into the 3/4" condensate line. They used I would guess schedule 180 EX pipe maybe heavier. We use all schedual 80 pipe/fittings for steam. The ID of the pipe installed was around a 1/4". Never figured why they used that pipe for 10lb steam.
