    The CPVC drain when PVC is just fine kills me.

    Edit: Looks like he used PVC with CPVC glue.

    ...and that’s how you do it without owning snips (or knowing how to use them). Just elbows, tees, and pancake reducers.
    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.

    Wow I didn't even realize that was a 90% the first couple times I looked at it. It's just so outrageous it didn't even occur to me.

    Reminds me of the nice expansion chamber that I had on my old 2 stroke dirt bike as a kid....
    You don't squat with your spurs on.
    And you NEVER put the torches away before pressure testing.

    Yeah I thought that was worthy enough for my first post on the wall of shame. For what it’s worth a HERS tester (ex employee of mine and friend) was doing a duct leakage test and found this mess. my understanding is he notified the home owner and general contractor and it was corrected hopefully before the common flue was destroyed. Feel sorry for whatever service tech has to try to work on either of those though....

    That’s one heck of a muffler/resonator on it! I’m guessing a half gallon of condensation is in it? Lol...

    even worse than not using snips, is how its a 90+ with that metal flue, can see the secondary heat exchanger in the cabinet. guess they didnt have PVC or tools. looks like the 3/4" pvc was glued with CPVC glue too

    What??

    Does, not dose. “Old mid”?? “The high is in front of it”?

    Notice the condensate wasn't connected on the furnace.

    This is artisan craftsmanship if I have ever seen it.

    Who are we to tell the furnace which bathroom it can use to alleviate itself?

    Its feeling its own truth.
