    Got enough elbows?

    I was cleaning out my phone and this gave me a chuckle when I found it on Google Photos, I thought I had long since lost it.
    I found this 10 years ago when I was a brand new, newly promoted-to-lead-installer-from-helper. Even then I knew it was crazy.

    That was an expensive vent pipe.

    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    That looks like metalbestos. Most people on my side of the bay have never heard of it.

    That’s what happens when one of two things happen. Either somebody didn’t order enough sticks of pipe or remotely close length or if the material was delivered to the job, the pipe didn’t make it to the job lol. Therefore installers being hounded to get this damn job done today and I do t care you have to do it, did it anyway they had to do it. 🤣

    The boss says "I ordered plenty of extra 90s just in case."
    After the job the tech calls and asks "What was all the straight pipe for?"
