    You're correct.

    15 is the minimum required for Pro Technical membership. Once you get 15, submit your application.

    You're really almost there.

    Correct , good plan . Easiest and quickest way is with a pump . You need the right kind of pump though .

    If you can pump 9 gals out of a chiller sitting in a vacuum with a manual pump you must have arms like Popeye ???
    I prefer my electric plug in version .

    You may want to call your local Trane office. The office I worked for had been including that service in the price of the chiller. So that it would be done at no additional charge to the owner. We found, in some cases, that was the best way to ensure it was done. I believe that was a local decision, so your local office may not be doing that, but it couldn't hurt to ask. Plus, you would have the opportunity to observe.
