    That's the economizer. For those hot days with very little humidity.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    First thing I thought of was an old swamp cooler sitting on top.

    Appears to be a home made attempt at a "Piggy-Back", Evap/DX/Gas Package unit of the past. Seen and worked the factory ones, made in the 70's. All in Commercial settings, like the County Dog Pound for one. Job Security at its Finest.

    That kinda looks like a mini cooling tower I saw back in tech school.
