Leaking A/C unit takes down

A serial entrepreneur is someone who effectively manages startups within their means to manage them, not someone who runs 30 different business ideas at once hoping one works. If I wanted to hire someone to throw things at a wall to see what sticks, I'd hire a two year old.

Those pictures are both sad and funny at the same time.

I suppose they had not prepared for a leaking a/c.

Which is why you would normally have an AIR HANDLER! in the DC and the Cooler outside with drainage in the AHU.

Tut Tut

I take it they are not normal DC units? just office units? ( The pictures are 404 )

Oops! Is what comes to the mind. Some of the comments here are really funny though!

drying the servers like that is not the best way cause it will be water accumulted in hard to reach areas, best way is with an air compressor 1 hp or higher.
