    Tight! You always have to take care of Mom.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Is the OD section complete? as you got a floating drier. Myself if they still make the brand and color of vinyl siding, I would buy a sheet or so and replace where the old disconnect switch was.

    The only refrigerant issues ive ever run into due to different sizes is when doing a high velocity unit like unico.

    Recent was a 4ton unit.

    4ton unico indoor paired with 4ton trane hp. Rated airflow is 1250cfm. So obviously, issues there. But, apparently, if you use a unico outdoor unit, there are no issues.

    I used hard drawn pipe. The siding is probably 30 years and aluminum.

    Good eye

    Nice work!

    When I was doing industrial work a guy I worked with put a furnace in for his mother. He used sch 80 pipe and hd ftgs and put 1000lbs of n2 on the pipe for the inspector. The inspector was like dang man I need 10 psi. He said “I didn’t want Mama to have a leak”.

    They are the pump ups designed to go with the Trane OD units. I personally hate them as they are a pain in the azz to install. Almost impossible to do yourself.

    Nice work. I really appreciate the gravel. Too many techs think it is beneath them to work with dirt.

    Hard 3/8 is an eye-catcher. I can't fathom why honeywell changed their media filter cabinets. The older style was able to be converted to an E/A/C using the existing cabinet and door. I guess they figured in the long run IF people bought Honeywell media they would be ahead over a one time E/A/C sale. Looks like you not have had the room anyway for the power pack.

    Enough to make a mother proud. Bet you got a few free meals doing that one.
