    I live in an area where condenser flooding happens 2-3 times a year.

    I also forgot. Take the fans out of bypass and turn all the compressors back on. That is really important.

    No offense, but I like my way of doing it much better than dividing and adding and counting and....guessing.

    it's not guessing.

    But as long as we all get to the setting, it does not matter.

    Sprinkler is nice.

    When my high side gauge reading changes, I know for a fact the valve is starting to modulate.

    Turning a valve 1/4 turn is an approximation.....nothing more.

    Approximations are guesses.

    What about on an Evaporative Condenser?

    I have been damn close with it Pat. Is it for sure dead balls. No. I mean I can't argue with ya there.

    Hey, I am saying, it shocked me too when I first was explained this. But I will be damned if it don't work.

    You're dead on, 4 D's. you and JPSmith seem to have basically the same process for setting the valve.....and I can't argue the idea that it will get you very close.

    As long as the end result is a properly dialed in HB valve - it doesn't really matter how one goes about getting there.

    For the record, I'm gonna try your method the next time and see what I think.....thanks for the info.

    What about this? If there are 17 available 1/4 turns in a Parker A8 valve, and the valves range is 10"-400#

    couldn't you just stem it in, then calculate how many turns out till set point?

    Okay smarta$$........how's it done.

    Honestly, I've not had the opportunity to work on many evap condensers and am lacking in knowledge on some of the intricacies of things like setting up a HB valve on 'em.
