We all know the adage, not all ___ are created equal. Well this really applies to AC Stop Leak products, the wrong choice can kill a system and your reputation.
We started the Stop Leak industry over 25 years ago and have been manufacturing a patented and exclusive formula that does not clog system ever since. What Gary is referring to in his video above is polymer based products and yes, they are a nightmare. They are activated by moisture (air), it acts as a catalyst and are similar to epoxy type products. Imagine injecting a product into your system and then in a few minutes it runs into moisture some where in the circuitry. Yes, you will create rocks, crust, goo, slime, or worse and it is inevitable.
We on the other hand developed a proprietary "non polymer" product, actually throwing out damaging activated concepts during testing back in the 80's. Stop Leak Plus products has been sold to OEM's, fortune 500 companies, US and foreign governments, national fleets and thousands of contractors world wide, for two decades now. Likewise, to date, we have never received a single report or claim for damage to an automotive or HVAC system, or a piece of service equipment.
If you are looking for a better than 95% success rate on your leak repairs, with virtually no labor to solve an issue, we stand behind our product and recommend it for every system you install or repair. Additionally, we are significantly less expensive than the dangerous polymer products you probably find your HVAC supply house pushing.
I hope this clears the air about stop leaks. I just wanted to be sure ours in not lumped in with the dozens that do cause problem and damage. You can find more info on the subject at this site... thanks, Gary
