I guess it depends on WHY you're talking about going to the pro forum. I was under the impression that the reasoning behind the pro forums was to limit access to privileged information, business discussions, and to prevent 'amateur' access. I understand this, perhaps, for the residential forums - but for chillers - I guess i just don't see much of a problem with amateur's even coming in contact with a chiller, let alone attempting any significant maintenance.

Im kinda on the fence . I can see and understand the reasons for going pro but when all's said and done if the hacks want to have a go then let them. When the screw it up they can get the guys who know how to fix it to do it right and we make lots of money doing it .
Also some of the posts really add to my amusment on a friday night .
So I say leave it be .You bend em" I"ll mend em" !!!!!!!

I got a good question, I think. What if this chiller forum does go pro only, and it looks like it probably is, how are the chiller mechanic guest, that want to get on here later going to become a pro? Are they going to have to get their post count up in the residential section or the commercial section? It will be hard to tell if someone is really a chiller mech. by post on residential or commercial . Also there are still a lot of good techs. out there that don't know about this site yet.

If they are truly a chiller mechanic even if they post in the other sections I am sure that someone will still respond to them but any critical info. will not be provided unless someone has decided to give it to them.Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
After a while you realize that while you are getting
dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.
It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
creative problem solving.

i'll probably have to leave this forum open but will have to move stuff as it gets complicated and i would need you guys to tell me to "move to pro" via the report button.
this is what we had to do in the control forum.

What the Chiller World Needs
Been so long since I even signed in I couldn't even come up with my log in info. Previously it seemed to me that there was very little of the kind of help I needed. I've more than 35 years as a UA member involved in the servicing and maintenance of chillers and more than 30 of those years was with an OEM. Working fo a mechanical contractor, I no longer have a steady diet of one manufacturers chillers and have run into a lot of things that were not "second nature". With all the changes in equipment and the evaporating supply of service literature made available by the OEM's I can see that there is a real need for a forum where "pro's" can openly exchange, both materials and experiences. While it's not clear to me what protection a pro chiller forum affords, it sure sounds like a good idearrr!
