    IT rack in mechanical room

    Found this in a mechanical room next to a CW AHU with a puddle on the floor from a leaking CW valve. Oh yea, don't forget the water valve next to it

    Free heat! First from the servers, then from the ensuing electrical fire.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    Use to work high rise. Basement IT room was directly below 16 levels of public restrooms. You can guess what happened.

    Some of our transmitter site equipment has AHU directly above transmitters (big mistake #1) Several suites had emergency drains tied to common drain, that stopped up. Well, float switches don't do any good if adjacent AHUs continue running.
    Learn from this- Each AHU should have seperate drain and never tied to a common line. I think this is not addressed in IMC but should be.

    It looks like someone may have hacked in the hose bibb after the fact. That would not surprise me either......

    Looks to be PEX and a bit far from the wall for original to the structure, but a handy distance of the centerline of the hammerdrill......
