    Where are the markers on the tubes to say where they Go>
    Interesting to note that uncertified installers where allowed to fit medical gas systems in Australian hospitals until recently after a death of a baby due to the wrong gas in an incorrectly labeled outlet.

    When I worked for a big semiconductor company I had the "pleasure" of designing our production support + CCD R&D lab as well as a pilot line R&D lab. There were "issues" with the way the company implemented my plans, most they refused to fix but one we yelled about a lot. Our pure nitrogen lines were actually compressed air. They asked how we knew, I said the first hint is water coming out the pipes. They said that's just condensation. I pointed out our nitrogen came from huge liquid nitrogen tanks out back, any water in them would be a brick in the bottom.

    Oh.

    They fixed that one instance.

    Oh, there was also the drain pipe marked "cyanide drain" that ran through the emergency shower. Certain people didn't see the humor in that and we all demanded they fix it. They built a box around the pipe.

    There are a lot of unqualified people in management and government, much to our detriment.
