    There is a reward, but have you ever heard of anybody collecting it?

    No, but I can imagine that might be kept on the down low because some guys might get a little vindictive after getting hit with a 5 digit fine.

    The first piece of equipment I bought when doing these types of minisplits was buy the shrader adapters--can not work on the R-410a systems without them. Sounds like you've been had. Cut your losses and get the first contractor, or another reputable contractor, out to get the system repaired correctly. It may cost you more now, but it will be done properly. Everything this guy did seems very wrong, especially blowing the charge out of the system. I would have told him to leave right then and there--if he gave me trouble, the police would have been there to escort him away.

    I am holding study groups at work for the 608 and 609 certifications and just went over this. The EPA can assess a fine up to $32,500 per violation, per occurance - this "hack" would be toast were he reported. The EPA can also award up to $10,000 as a reward for turning someone in.

    Dunn, do us all a favor and call the EPA on this guy. You could possibly rid us of this hack and at the sametime put some cash in your pocket.

    Pay me now, or pay me later...

    You sir are the worst kind of customer that I never want to meet.

    Your cheapness will cost you double than if you just bought the unit from the installing contractor and had him install, service, and warranty the job.

    LOL!!!

    With all the trouble the OP is having.
    I think he learned his lesson.
    Lets not beat up on him too hard.

    I want to hear how this turns out.

    do not let this guy back in your house , do you see that there is a difference in the way that a company operates that spends the money to train the techs and installers hope it was worth the savings
