min i will go for G23 copper piping, 3/8 insulation, 16mm drainage pipe.
max G22, 1/2 insulation and 16mm drainage pipe.
i prefer armaflex insulation.

upgrading is kaisu, play safe since the installation going to use for many years so why not use better material.

I got budget constraint so therefore considering whether to upgrade it. If the default installation is good enough, then i wont be upgrading. By the way which one is better? Foam or rubber insulation?

Use Accoflex, more commonly used. Armaflex is also quite gd.

I have my neighbour complaining my room creating water condensation on their side of the wall each time i use my aircon. I'm using starmex inverter system 4. I've already set it to 24 degree and the blower faced downward. They called HDB and complained to me.

It's the whole wall and the wall is opposite my indoor unit. That wall doesn't even have anything attached to it..nothing related to aircon attached to that side...I am baffled how thick is the wall since it could create so much condensation on the other side.
