    I admit that I have used this product once, but you would think that if the problems exist that yall are claiming that it would be removed from the shelves.
    Did these problems ever show up in factory or independent tests? Have these results been published? Are there any lawsuits filed that claim the product is destructive?

    Several distributors around here say they sell quite a bit of it, none have reported any negative feed back, and I know them quite well.

    Yall got me worried now and paranoid dammit!

    We need to move this discussion to the professional section.

    Wahoo, I don't think that's necessary but contact a mod as you wish.

    FWIW, I think this thread shows what happens when HO's try to take the short, cheap route. I think It's informative in a good way to HO's.

    Tangent, I totally agree HO need to know this stuff usually has a poor track record, but some have to ask why it's still on the market and THAT discussion needs to be in the pro section, IMO anyway.

    Cool, if my memory is correct, there is a seperate subject in pro section complete with some pictures. Might want to check it out. But as I said, there seems to be a "kit" available now that may address some of the past problems, so might work better now, don't know but based on our experience can't convince me to try it again.

    It becomes personal preference I think. If someone has been burned by it they won't use it again. If you've had good luck then you will stand by the product. That's all it is IMO!

    I just searched google for complaints on HVAC super seal and HVAC stop leak, and much to my surprise there was not a long list of complaints. There were a few isolated complaints listed, but no forum from consumer watchdog agencies decrying the ripoff... I have to admit I was expecting to find some substantive complaints, but alas, I did not.

    No, If it was rocket science we would be called space janitors.

    I have been using it now for about 30 days in an apartment complex we have, not sure if the leaks were repaired for not been in field long enough. I do know we have yet to lose any equipment due to product. This equipment is residential type and uses a piston metering device.

    Yesterday I used it for the first time in a unit with an TXV and almost instantly it restricted the device. My supplier keeps telling me that it was not the product but just a faulty TXV, it was working fine before the product, just low charge.

    I have 3 service trucks, the product has been restricted from this point on to 1 apartment complex being they are for the most part in very poor overall condition. We will never use it in any other customers equipment, no exceptions. The apartments are owned by a friend and I have informed him of the issue I had on another piece of equipment so it was his choice to continue use of product.
