Lets say this,
Air cooled machine,
System in deep vac,
Charge liquid in the high side,. (Condenser)
Water flowing in the DX evap,
Pressure slowly rises,.
I am not saying its ok to do this just a lil theory thinking here,.
Commercial larger DX split,. I have charged liquid in the high side before, but obviously there is no water in this sistutation ,.
Sorry rick, did not mean to hijack ur thread!
On that note,. Do what the residental HVAC on site people want, money in the bank,.
10 gallons seems a lot but do what spec says.
