    It's all about location.

    I'm not a plumber but to me the sump pump would have been a clue that the furnace maybe should be moved.

    I'm tempted to run away. The furnace sitting in water was only the most obvious problem but there were so many code violations I lost track.

    That is one of those calls where I would say, call us after you clean up the water. Then sell them a house full of Mr Slims.

    The funny thing about this mess is that there's tons of room in the basement. To do it properly they would have just had to move the furnace 30" to the left and redone some sheet metal.

    But that would have cut into my beer money and child support payments.

    I always get a little thrill when I see one installed correctly. It's not bad equipment at all for the money and it doesn't deserve to be treated so badly.

    I poo poo Carrier not Goodman at least Goodman builds decent junk it just doesn't get installed right carrier doesn't have an excuse for their issues.

    The equipment isn't that cheap it's equivalent in cost to the bigger names and it has a solid warranty. If it wasn't for the fact that any cracker out there can buy Goodman I'd be happy to start selling it but I'm not looking to compete on price with a guy that doesn't pay for insurance or licensing costs.

    I installed the them for a couple different dealers. Those 2 summers were the most warranty work I have ever done. At least 2-3 calls per week. Always after hours. Tons of caps, contactors, and leaky coils.

    Sooty, when did you start working in pakistan?

    Complete joke. The garbage around it tells the rest of the story.

    Looks to me like someone once had a steam boiler, that they had to dig out to get enough height to stack condensate.
    Had that happen at 2 different locations.
    Boiler only flooded once, for them to buy a sump pump, and one of those water powered wet jet backups.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    I went to a crawl space in a nice home, air handler drain issue “they said”…
    The sewer pump was down and sewage backed up into the air handler area. I left and said I will call the installers and be right back. Well someone went back, not me.

    I sold a job similar to that. Company policy was whoever sold it installs it. Except that one day the boss sent the hack to install my job and I was put elsewhere. It ended up just like that. The cinder blocks he was supposed to put it on were put off to the side because he was too lazy.

    The customer still bitches to this day (not about me). I "stole" them when I quit that guy and they followed me.

    If the intake pipe had been extended it could have acted as a snorkel and the heat would still work.

    That could have been an easy fix. Put in a sump with 2 pumps one higher than the other with the higher one pumping where it would be noticed. Water should have never gotten that deep. I have 2 15 ton WSHPs 3PH units that a sump pump quit, water back up overflowing the pit ran across the basement floor, went into the pit designed for the HVAC equipment which is not on the floor, that sump backed up and the whole basement filled to 6" until it shorted the 3PH power for the WSHP's and it quit cooling. Then they found the 6" of water in the basement.
