    Blend or no blend fill the glass... When it starts cycling on HP when it pumps down then start worring about tourching your recevier.

    Take a look at supermarket setup. More valves,regulators,pressure switches,controls,then one can shake a stick at. Jp is holding back. Comes easy for him because he's doing it daily.

    For A/C 2 gases
    For refrigeration I lost count.

    So if you had 2 techs. 1 a/c & 1 refrigeration and could only send one on both types of calls which would you send ?
