    I took a large schrader access fitting and fitted it to a 1 1/8" acr plug. Then added a ball valve for quick nitrogen release.

    Check out these fittings that you can use on the end of your hose for either nitro, CO2 or even a water hose sprayer if you have it available. https://youtu.be/K_uK_Z09keg

    Cool...but my main reason for using a real Gallo is to avoid lugging a nitro tank around and up in an attic or roof.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    Look how I use the Gallo gun in this video. I attached a refrigerant hose to the Gallo gun.

    I saw that before and wish every pvc drain had one. Irritates me to no end that they don't even put a union on them most of the time.

    Totally agree. It saves time and energy especially when in a 120 degree attic here in Florida. It is so cost effective that it should be a no brainer.

    I totally agree with you, but worked for a large corporate run service company. I purchased my own Gallo Gun and continued to purchase all refills for the better part of 10 years. I had to keep the device a secret because the company didn't want us using them. The possibility of ruining carpet, drapes or furniture with careless use apparently overruled the obvious benefit for us (not blowing into condenser lines with your friggin' mouth). It's one of the best AC and condensing HH tools in the toolbox.

    You have one heck of a blower if you can blow out a condenser line, do you blow through the suction or liquid line to clear it out.

    Sorry... CONDENSATE line. And yes, I once called fishing line "string" too. Got the same chastising for that. My mind to mouth filter is weak. ha

    Only problem using Gallo Gun is blowing the non-glued fittings apart; especially the ones the installer forgot to glue located in the walls.

    I'll second that. Been there too many times. I'll stick with my 4gal 5hp shop vac and warm/hot water
