    Even owner/operators should know how to log their chiller, and should do it regularly.

    I suggest you call in a service company that is familiar with this model chiller.

    I don't know about Daikin, but Trane requires ALL techs carry ladders on racks like this. At least our office did.

    I suggest that you have this moved to a "Chiller" forum. I suspect some (or a lot) of the chiller techs rarely visit the "General Discussion" forum.
