    There's nothing wrong with no rinse evap cleaner I use it all the time. However if its really plugged its a waste of time and money, i mostly use on the fairly clean coils during routine maintenance. Or in the cases when you have no choice due to accessibility of cool coil I'll use cans and can n a lot of patience. Anyway go to grainger supply or united refrigeration both work the same.

    Really? I haven't see a brand of no rinse that doesn't eat the coils up yet

    I'm talking about the spray foam in can, if that's what u use and its eating coils your doing something wrong. Technically its not entirely true about be a no rinse formula because the condesate running of cooling coil rinses off cleaner, if your using during heating season I'd say maybe you are having troubles with it, there's no condensate- same goes for any no rinse liquid solution you may be using. No rinse can really only be used during cooling season. I'very been using this stuff for a long time with long running clients -same old units and no coil break downs.

    Yep same stuff, we even have a company policy now that it can't be used.

    Didn't realize it was no rinse because the condensate washes it off

    Evap-Green no rinse coil cleaner.
    Gallon jug, mix with water 4:1 if memory serves.
    Does NOT eat coils. Works fantastic. Used for the last four years.
    If humidity is low, I'll rinse with water but usually just fire and forget with the pump up applicator.
