    I got hooked on using that sealant crap for a while. It made me lazy. This year I decided to never use it again(after watching Chris on HVACR youtube videos), and Now I seem to find all the leaks I was too lazy to look for that I deemed too difficult to find. Now, of course, I have become a snob about it and look down on my co workers for using it. Go H10-Pro!

    YES, YES I DO !. Go To School, and Learn How to Troubleshoot, Find, and Repair a Leak with the "PROPER HVAC REPAIR TOOLS". End of Story, and Advice. Now,Take Care, and No Personal Offence Intended.

    PS: NEVER USE THIS "Panther Piss", unless you are willing to put a tag with YOUR NAME on the Unit, So Us "Real Deal Professionals" Know What We are Dealing With When We Arrive On Site to Attempt to Troubleshoot this MESS, that Some "So Called Wannabe" "HVAC Techs" Have left US, to Attempt to Clean Up and REPAIR. Thanks!

    NEVER use leak seal on a mini-split/ductless. You will kill it.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    I found some sort of a calculator on this app. Not sure If I am using it right. But I dont like the compressor discharge temp. But I also didn't like my 337 head pressure as well.

    225° is generally considered the limit. I like to keep it below 200°F. "

    Looks like I posted in the wrong thread. Yeah, ive heard about that limit and from a class I saw from copeland(and I believe one of your posts) I I am making my limit 200f as well. I brought up discharge temperature monitoring at a meeting at work and all i got was a bunch of sighs. Too much hassle for people to check.

    That stuff will clog the mini-split system up and it will need to be replaced. At least the outdoor unit anyway. It has no filter dryer.

    If you don't believe me, call the manufacturer.

    I feel the same way about the acid cleanup powder you dump in the system. Never used it and clean up driers seem to work fine. The proper refrigerant, oil and and a dry and proper vacuum I will stand behind.
