    Talking red neck freon recovery



    I wonder why he didn't mention recovering old cars, refrigerators and freezers, too? I mean, after all, as he says, its all the same type of freon so you can use it in your own home AC! beat22

    That crazy! This kind of information is danger to DIY homeownerstoe tap2toe tap2. Question why does people keep referring to refrigerant as Freon?



    "Most homeowners know what air conditioner freon is. Freon is DuPont’s brand name of refrigerant.

    The reason so many people are familiar with AC Freon, because it was the first brand to presented on the market. Freon is DuPont’s trade name for it air conditioning refrigerant." --

    I'm not sure whether to laugh, cry or call the EPA.

    There is SO much scary misinformation in that video that the guy is lucky to have lived as long as he has doing that crazy stuff.

    That's....er ummm...stunning? I'm speechless...

    This guy need to be better educated.
    He should be a blue collar instead of a red neck.

    But at least we know we can interchange them all.. So anyone looking for a drop-in replacement for R-22, just take some 134a out of your car and fill 'er up...

    EPA Wont help much considering he is located in London Ontario Canada... Yes this is very very illegal in Canada as it is in the US.

    Well I'm relieved to know I can use an oval or round compressor to do this...

    I guess that "Red-neck" stuff is funny from time to time, but, its idiots like that, who end up getting hurt and/or tear up equipment trying to save a buck. If this self proclaimed "Redneck" blows himself up, im going to write him in for the Darwin award. Jack-a$$!

    Did anyone else notice he was discussing saftey on the amount to fill the drum, yet the drum was made for propane? with a home made valve stem, LMFAO !!! I would pay good money to watch this moron hurt himself. And remember guys....ALL UNITS USE "exactly" THE SAME "freon" Regardless of what the label states. All the same....Could have save a S#@% load if i had known that before...Ive been buying those different ones for so long beat22beat22
