this product makes big claims but I was wondering if anybody had any experience with it.

I was thinking of offering it to customers as an alternative sealed system repair for refrigerator.

I suggest you either offer full sealed system repair or none at all. I think you and your customers will come out better by you staying out of the gray area.

We use the regular ac leak freeze and haven't had any issues. It is mainly offered to those with built-in refrigerators because many don't want to pay the big repair bill. Plus we don't want to damage their floors when pulling those monstrous built-ins out. Either way the customer is made aware that this may only fix their leak temporarily. I do know for sure I went back on one that had the sealer put in, and it lasted a year. The guy opted for another shot intead of repair because he planned on moving anyway. I did talk him into installing a dye drier to pinpoint the leak so we can discuss a more permanent solution in the future. I was always told to stay away from sealers in hvac, but so far it hasn't been an issue for us.

I have used it (different brand)---for window air conditioners over 10000btu

 

Good stuff


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

It certainly serves its purpose. To be clear, my point is if you are going to offer it as a service, you should also be qualified and understand sealed system work. In other words, I don't think it's prudent to say, "I don't do sealed system work but I know just enough to give you some stop leak." That is the gray area to avoid.
