    My unit has a leak on the high pressure aluminum condenser coil. Would the clamp made by combining the saddle valves work for this as well? Do you suggest any specific brand?

    They sell a repair kit that's a short piece of pipe with compression fittings on both ends. It was designed for the copper to aluminum connection where the coil meets the liquid or hot gas line but I'll bet it will work on a straight section of coil also.

    Trane has two different size repair kits for their al cond coils- GE is Trane now.

    I've used the splice kit to repair one that had a hole rubbed in the line on the bottom. cut out damaged section and rejoined the two ends. That unit was 20 yrs old and they wanted to patch it.
