I am posting this because i was working for a company for 2 weeks and found out one of the people training me was illegally venting refrigerant into the atmosphere because he was to lazy to do it the right way. I informed him the first time about him venting refrigerant and he did it again to bleed out a pre charged 410A unit. the line set for the unit was about a 20 foot run and because of that the refrigerant charge on gauges was showing to high so he hooked up his gauges to the unit on the suction line and put his neutral into a bucket of water and let it go until he was reading 150 on low side.
I understand the EPA has guidelines for this but I was wondering if a story is enough to report this individual.
P.S. Found out this same guy was the one who got me fired saying i was getting in his way and not ready to do maintenance on units which was total bs but yah thats another story.
