    It sounds like what may be seen at the exhaust port of a vacuum pump when there is a little refrigerant in the system.

    I was going behind a gas company tech who had condemned a 7 year old carrier system he said was contaiminated with white moisture. I looked at the unit today and found the the txv was defective. I had never heard the term white moisture must be a gas company exclusive. thanks for the input

    White moisture...canoot valves... flux capacitors...I believe they come from the same family.

    I started in the Gas company union in 74... he is bull sheeeting and has no idea what day it is.

    He probably opened up a valve cap and spewed some oil on his little tender fingers.

    perhaps the gas man meant condensation forming and dripping through the flue connections.

    i encounter this all the time with unlined chimneys.

    homeowners do not always have thier terminology right.

    Oil mixed with water in a blender makes mayonaise. Compressor is the blender. Oil and water- priceless!
