i can pull -25in.Hg vacuum with it. i find i still have to shake the carboy to make sure i get all the disolved co2 out.
This is what I was looking at.
The system was empty. Added a little bit of UV oil and a can of refrigerant to diagnose the issue. AC turned on almost instantly, low side pressure around 30 psi by the end of the can; manifold gauges rock.
Plan is to run the AC for just a week or so to avoid long-term issues, just long enough to find the issue.
Hopefully we'll find the leak. If so, we'll buy the parts to replace.
In any event, we'll also get the accumulator and an o-ring set, pay for evac, replace the parts, pull vacuum, and charge it up properly.
Gotta get a vacuum too. Still confused whether the vacuum needs the r134a adapter - the adapter is illegal to ship to california for some reason; the vacuum in question (link) says it's made specifically for r134a but half the people say you need an adapter and half say you don't. (I got the manifold gauges I linked before - this one (link).
