    I took these pictures after turning bypass valve off. Flow switch was still closing with no flow through evap.

    Probably better off to replace that old p.o.s.
    The key to happiness is lower expectations.

    Don't pick the fly crap out of the pepper.

    Replaced a 99 RTAA 100 ton barrel in Aug. 40k$ job and done in a day. No rupture though the plastic baffles were warped due to hot water damage.

    They are not busted yet. I was just thinking that bypassing evap in winter could cause it to freeze if ambient gets cold enough. Then I wondered what a chiller barrel costs. I have never replaced/retubed one.

    I don't know if refrigerant or h20 is in the tubes. I would think h20 in tubes.

    oh I am sure you could freeze a dx chiller!
    but since it is a tube bundle full of refrigerant surrounded or placed in a barrell of water, it would be hard! I think?
