Once POE oil gets saturated, you wont get below a certain value, say 700. The Drier should remove the remaining moisture. Also, the micron gauge can be maintained and cleaned. Changed the oil in your pump at least every other time. I do mine very often, almost every time. I have changed it 3 times on a chiller. Also the level should be level in the sight glass while its running. Schrader caps have to be on all valves, caps on the Liquid and suction isolation valves, and do they leak?
Check your seals on your hoses. Theres nothing else to it.
I also do the triple Vac with varying results.
Hahahahha, ill show this to the boss, and the price, I'm sure he'll laugh too.
Looks impressive, I'm working with a plain jane YJ working/charge manifold.
My micron gauge doesn't like positive pressure. Oil gets pushed onto the sensor and it wont read right. I always pull vacuum for a minute before I open valve to the gauge. I also clean my gauge sensor with alcohol. Don't forget to look for driers inside the units.

Does your vacuum pump have a gas ballast port? This is from Yellow Jacket U If you suspect an open or wet system, be sure to use the gas ballast feature on your vacuum pump. The gas ballast prevents water vapor from condensing in the vacuum pump oil by introducing a small amount of fresh air into the pumping chamber. Open the gas ballast just slightly and then begin to watch your electronic vacuum gauge. If the vacuum stays at a consistently high level of microns or doesn’t pull down below 5,000 microns, your system still contains contamination or has a leak. Repair the leak before proceeding.
If your hitting 500 micron and can hold it , or at least under 700 for 1/2 hr I'd say you have clean tight system. Doesn't matter how long it takes to get there as long as it gets there. As previously stated your 410A systems will take longer, much longer in some cases, then the R22 systems with MO. POE likes liquid be it refrigerant or water. Once it gets ahold of some it will not let it go without a long hard fight. Your procedures sound good and proper so relax and be patient. On a side note I like to use brute manifold set with 3/8 hose. Get a vac pump with a 3/8 connection and pull through it. Will make a big difference in pull down time.

Why not buy your own tools, that way you can take them with you and no one else can mess with them?
Your methods look good but I would blow out all of the nitrogen before you hook up the vacuum pump. Your not going to get any moisture going into your system through your 2 hoses and manifold by letting all the nitrogen out.
