    It only makes a helluva mess and takes forever to get out of your guages. Not to mention every time you hook up guages it gets back in your hoses. Use a sniffer.

    I have an old set of gauges I use when I see a system that has dye in it. Of course, some don't bother to label a system when they use that stuff!

    I would rather have that than someone doing a gas conversion and not marking it!

    I have had so many systems with 100 feet of line set that bubbles up in a crawl space is a mess and trying a sniffer when 11 other condensing units are running is a joke. I found it as a necessary evil.
    Hey you get dye on your hands and hit a go-go bar with the black lights and you are the center of attention. LOL

    They took R-12 away to save the environment well our systems were sealed and at most caused a small leak over years. What about a a can of pledge that every housewife sprayed over the coffee table several times a week!

    Thats what happens when politicians regulate science!!!!
