    Don't ask me why I fixed this.

    But we got it going. Dog piss on outdoor condenser. Corroded thru the bottom tube in several places. We got the wise idea to replace about half the tube. 12lbs of r22 later, its good to go.

    Why did you fix that?? You could cut some sheet aluminum or better yet copper strips and solder to tje new tubes as well...your job is not done.

    I would have taken some sheet metal and covered that whole section up, I bet all of the air is drawn thru that area and not anywhere else. I bet the head pressure is pretty high too. With 12 Lbs of r22, I would love to see what you charged them!

    Charged for the gas and thats it. A real close friend bought the house, been empty 3 years, been up there every night after work fixing tons of problems. Wanting to get through this summer. Then its zone time and redo everything. POS install. 4 ton unit. Just want it to last a couple months tops.

    I did block the hole off. Pressures seemed to be pretty normal actually. Lacking in the airflow department inside, but that's due to the morons that think a 5 ton drive will pull thru a 16x25 filter.

    You realize they still sell condenser right? Even dry R22 condensers.
