    I always weigh in the proper charge because it eliminates guessing later that its a charge issue if the cooler still dont work right.

    You don't need to guess, if you know what you're doing. And, no I don't crank the customer.

    I have only used the scale 2 times in my whole career of 24 years.

    It's like looking at a map when you already know where your going...
    Do to hell with EPA requirements and rgulations.I hope no one turns you or your company in.You really need to reeducate yourself on proper procedures .Even when charging to superheat and subcooling specifications you still need to weigh the refigerant to keep proper documentation and to charge accordingly.

    When installing refrigerant I have both weighed in the refrigerant by the ounce and I have counted the skids of 125 pound cylinders of refrigerant as I added them. Why do you ask?

    How about that? And here all this time I thought it was measured in dollars.

    You should always weigh in critical charge units it is designed to work with a specific amount of ref. If it ain't workin right with the right amount something else is wrong

    Did I read this wrong originally?
    Are you asking if I weigh-it-in ?
    Or are you asking if I use a scale as opposed to guessing?

    I do use a scale - unless the charge is measured in cylinders rather than pounds.

    I can only rarely remember ever fully 'weighing in a charge'. That is: charging with the cylinder actually on the scale and me watching the numbers fall.
