    Question, about above my ac is sitting on a little rubber pad, and its not on the highest ground, not sure how I would go about raising the ac 2 inches or so? the lines are hard and I dont want to risk breaking them, but would be awesome if I could lift it, pack 2 inches of gravel under it. would help water drainage. do you think AC people would come out, and help me make sure I dont break nothing so I can move it/shove some gravel under it, and such? because all the area around it, is higher, than it. so I lowered the rocks to go along with it. but ideally id like the generator and all the rocks to be level.

    opinion? im going to do a deep clean on the ac too, I just cleaned/serviced my generac and ceramic coated it lmao. with all the bushes away from them, it'll be way easier to keep clean, need to scrub the house too where bushes was rubbing against.

    will help keep bugs away from the house, I spray the permiter, but my room mate lives in that room and due to bushes, spiders like to sneak in a little bit. this will help deter the bugs I think.

    I can just spray round up on the rocks and murder the growth under it!

    ^^^^Well Done Penguin! The rubber mat under the ac is to absorb vibration.
    The river rock may introduce unwanted vibration.

    edit, I just though about it. the people installed that generator in that spot due to bushes behind them. I tore everything out, so I am curious how much it would cost to move the generator 2 feet back, that way I could make a straight line with my concrete, then a 90 degree bend. instead of having it outward for no reason.

    Lol hope he doesnt want a ton for that.

    I am just worried about drainage, but I bet its fine. I wonder if I can get a larger rubber mat? like another inch or two taller, and I can pack some dirt under one corner to make it level.
