    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    That's Greece, Guy.

    You are thinking of Jojoba oil.

    So if I got this straight, the GWP for R-22 is 1700...but many of the R22 alternatives are actually higher GWP meaning they are worse for the environment?

    Sad to say... when the govt is involved... things do not make sense. (Nothing new about the govt screwing up everything they get there grubby hands on).

    Drop ins....replacements.....SHUT UP!!!! Don't let that get out!! I made a rather large investment in R-22 when it was much less expensive! I'm making some nice profits on that stuff and still have a few thousand pounds left!

    Arkansaw? Most Rheem stuff is made south of the border by Juan, not John. Furnaces and light commercial still made in Arkansas but furnaces are reported to be moving south as well in the future.

    We have 22 coming out our ears too!

    Haven't figured that out yet!?! Are there any workers left down there to build these things?

    I recently went to a Copeland compressor class and the instructor said 22 and poe will mix, just be sure to blow the old oil out of the evaporator coil and put on a new drier.

    Yeah, I have a fair amount (for my business) of 22 in my shop... I also use a drop-in when needed.

    Better IMO to sell them a new 410 unit if one can...

    I get that selling R410a systems is the best thing. I also get that the second best thing is to repair the 22 system and recharge with r22. The reality is these alternative refrigerants are looking better and better all the time unless they jack those prices up too. Right now a jug of 407c or 422d is substantially less than R22. I will no longer be buying pallets of R22 no matter how scary the prospect is.
