    If we can't replace the lines, we do not flush unless it's a burn-out. Always empty an 80-CF N2 cylinder at 600-PSI you are good to go. the oldest system done that way is now
    7 years old, no problem.

    One thing I know is if my customer's condenser needs a replacement, he won't be very happy to be forced to upgrade the whole system to R410a. Meanwhile, I have stocked up on jugs of R22.
