Tube through wall for minisplit
Another question regarding my minisplit DIY install. The tube they supplied to pass through the wall is about 6″ long, which is useless for me since the wall section I have is 17″ thick. The tube is 60mm ID, or 2.375″. This appears to be as small as it can be to easily slide the line set through. 2.5″ PVC pipe exists, but for some reason it doesn’t exist in Canada. So I’m left with two options.
1. Use 3″ PVC pipe. This looks friggin’ huge, but it’s cheap and easy.
2. Import a piece of 2.5″ pipe. This will cost me about $60, and set my install back 1-2 weeks.
I’m I crazy to be concerned about putting an extra half inch diameter hole through the wall? I feel like maybe I am, but it’s hard to see from inside my own head.
