    I have checked with supply houses here and none know of these bags.

    Would be nice for small pou's at restaurants and such.(Instead of pulling a 30# recoverey bottle each time.)

    Yuma,
    What is snow? Is it that white stuff in a freezer?

    I see nothing in EPA guidelines which specifically prohibits the use of dead hacks as refrigerant bags.

    It would seem like a simple enough procedure to insert a shrader valve containing mechanism into an orifice leading to a body cavity.

    I have some of those bags, and I use them. But they are not legal to use to transfer from one place to another.
    Cant put them in your rig and drive down the road with them.
    Thats the information I got from DOT
