How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

Owners of equipment with charges of greater than 50 pounds are required to repair leaks in the equipment when those leaks together would result in the loss of more than a certain percentage of the equipment's charge over a year. "
That first sentence states that the charge must be greater than 50#. It has always been that way. So unless the system you are working on contains more that 50 #, leak location and repair is not required. That pretty much eliminates the requirement for all residential equipment.
You could be close to trouble by telling a customer that a leak must be located and repaired. If you say it is company policy OK. If you say the EPA requires, then you may be in trouble.
