    I bought some just in case, but I never got the guts to use it,it just didnt seem right to put something similar to a tire sealant into a nice clean system.Thank you Jesus for not letting me use that crap!

    I have a system where one of the past residents used bleach to keep her condensate drain clear. I've been able to patch up two capillaries but I still have a pinhole leak in there somewhere and have been tempted to use this stuff...sigh...guess I'll hafta get out my sniffer and find the leak

    Do you mark the system so the poor schmuck who comes along after knows to walk away before installing his gauges or recovering that stuff?

    My thought's exactly!

    Had a HO who is an auto mechanic ask me about it once. I told him, sure they make it for resi unit's. It's a last ditch patch that may or may not work. You want it, you buy it. Put it in yourself & don't call me when your unit dies. I don't want it in my guages or my G5. I was polite and respectfull & meant every word. He opted for a new evap coil.

    I used that product once on 4 ton water source heat pump. That was about four years ago and haven't been back to the unit since. The unit is still chugging along problem free. And yes, a label is included in the box that you can stick to the unit indicating that the super seal is in the system.

    Its like anything else. If you dont follow directions, There is a good chance of failing. We have used it on a couple systems on their last legs. We advised the customer against using it, and if it worked it worked. If it didn't then it was time for a new system. (these systems are over 20 years old) We have never had a problem with it. Do I want it in my geothermal 27 seer unit. NO. Would I use it on my 20 year old air/air system to get thru summer. Yes.

    Have used it 4 or 5 times with horrible results each time. Last couple of times we replaced all dryers and evacuated really well, and still lost both compressors. Don't use it!!!!!!!!

    Confused

    jdblack

    I have researched the product and spoke w/ cliplight tech to know more before I use the "total 2".
    Is it possible that the drier used was saturated w/moisture?

    I have found / used many such driers. Using them on a sys. w/holding charge overnight and the nearby SG showed wet.

    Alco sweat driers are problem due to their bleed hole in the cap-hard,black w/knurls (hidden from view-But found with bubble solution). Alco said they were there to prevent the caps from popping off during their painting procedure.

    BTW
    Per Cliplight
    THE sealer exist only as bound to the refrigerant.
    It is removed as the refrig. is removed.
