I did one last year that had 3 350s (CU)and we used 3" or 3 1/2" (being old I have no memory) PVC. POCO had no prob with it as long as it had enough straps and did not project above the roof (no PVC masts).

From this side of the 'pond' it looks horrible, and quite defaces an otherwise fine house. Or houses actually, as the close-ups are a mix of shots of the neighboring house [?] as well, [ the eaves terminations are different in the close-ups, one has a hip termination, the other a barge-board* end ]. Why could it not have been run parallel to the downspout on the hipped version, or down the corner on the other, till it penetrated the eave, then run under the soffit to a 90 bend then down to the meter? Or is that not allowed by Code? I take it the extraneous cables draped round the meter box are temporary.
I like the bay window arrangement BTW, it has a nice symmetry with the portico.
Is the manly young fellow waving a set of giant pie-cutters for any particular reason? I know American Portion Size is out of control, but that is ridiculous!
ps. Pardon if my terminology for roof styles does not translate.

those cookie cutters are ducting for a/c units, and the reason you have to use gal pipe is some people had used the soffit area to go into a splice box and steal power from the poco. The two house's were next to a house our company were working on, more pics to follow.
