OK, as promised ... the REST of the story
I arrived on site this morning to find that someone had been busy during the night; the pipes had been worked on. Either one heck of a cincidence, or the EC lurks this site. Here's a first look at the new pipe run:
Much better- but still not quite there.
HotLine had been asking about the 90 up topside; here's a closer view:
On closer examination, it looks like the run started as RMC -note the factory 90- and then transitioned to EMT. Let's step back now, and look at the wall-mounted pipe:
Only one strap, and that controller is mounted somewhat high- about face level. Still, not as bad as this one down the hall, which is mounted somewhat higher:
Friends, that's almost out of reach. What do you think the odds are that the pipe was bent 'in place,' and they didn't bring any more pipe or wire along?
You have to believe me when I tell you that I have no official part of this operation, and cannot express my judgement. Somebody needs to hang up their toolbelt for a bit, and ponder the errors of their ways.
