    If it costs more, you make more. I see nothing wrong with charging R-22 systems with R-22.

    Yeah and you advised me to sell at $600 per jug:nono::nono::nono::loltard:

    Oh well I turned a $5700 investment into a $35,000 sale, and I would do it again

    I honestly thought we'd topped with the tight allocations.

    Wire-nut sales margins still have that beat. :)

    Anything over 5 tons, if the gas is missing or has to come out, we are converting the system to something else unless the owner specifically refuses.

    5 tons and below, we give them the option.

    It's going to be an interesting couple of years, but we did this to ourselves. Should have gotten it out of the way 20 years ago, like the refrigeration guys did.
