No split, but heat rec coil....
I found a leak today on a condenser discharge header.
My problem is I have never had to repair one before and was hoping someone could explain the best way to do this.
4 compressors on an old Hill rack, only one condenser and piped w/ no split.
The rack does have a hr coil, my question...can I, while monitoring HP, shut down the discharge bv and run the condenser out of liquid, w/ the fans off, then shut rack off, and close drop leg bv?
Then dump the remaining gas in a pre- pumped down circuit.
Does this sound right? Or is there a better way.
Oh yea, There are two other racks w / same R-22 and could dump it in the suction header.
That isn't going to work.

I like your thinking. That will speed it up a lot.
