    Causing cancer in Jersey too. There must be a reason Carrier pays hazard pay for 123 and insists you dispose of all hoses , fittings etc after use with 123.
    I’m just sayin it’s a safety issue because our safety officer made it an issue. Mandatory fit testing for respirator, gloves, msds sheets . Never had any of that for r11 , but then again , disco was legal too.

    Recently went to United to get some degreaser in can that replaced Virginia 10. It was an Ef ... , the Ef stood for environmentally friendly. The manager looked it up and united stopped carry it ASAP. Labeled unsafe for use in US ? Now all they offer is spray bottles of degreaser.

    My grandfather used to poor old oil cans on his stone driveway to keep the dust and weeds down. Swimming pools with evaporated chlorine lased water. Let me get back on track here.

    Many chemicals out there , we all look at them differently. Just be careful and safe with the decisions you make.

    I’m curious as too the safety/ effects of the new lp refrigerants. Anyone ?

    Good talk , thanks
    cant make this crap up

    I work with 123 pretty much everyday. No side effects that I'm aware of. At least not yet.

    Carrier made these wild claims several years ago that it caused testicular enlargement. I wish it caused penis enlargement, if it did, we wouldn't have trouble finding techs at the orange meatball. Haha.

    It is a touch flammable. Be careful with your oil samples.
    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    Political Correctness is forced on you because you have forgotten decency.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.

    No enlargement here either. Still waiting though.

    R11 was the greatest degreaser ever invented, and it didn't burn like hell when you sit on the rag. Unlike Zep. I put my leg on a Zep rag yesterday, long enough for it so soak through my pants. Ouch!!!! Thankfully it was my thigh.

    You mean that’s why my balls are hanging all the way down and dipping into the toilet water now? I was wondering about that.

    Or maybe he just needs to call a plumber and get the toilet fixed
