    Correct. That's the reason I made this comment earlier about being a short run of piping.

    Ah Gotcha. Carrier Aquasnap

    Did you change jobs?
    No. Same thing. What this all started from is I was talking to someone with whom I used to work with and it came up. I/we just try to help out when we can.

    A buffer tank is probably the best way to go.
    Yea it probably is

    How many gallons of water volume do you have per ton?
    Not sure anymore. This was a few years ago.

    That was the mechanical but it could be a different job but I knew of an 8-10 ton chiller that was problems for a medical application.

    Well from what I heard the 3 way valves were piped incorrectly and pinching off the water flow plus they already had a buffer tank I believe.
