    Fellas, I checked my outside condenser for leaks with the halogen detector and the valves are evidently not turned all the way out and leaking. So I can't remember what size the tools are to turn the high pressure and low pressure out more so they won't leak. I appreciate your help.(Port valves) Thanks

    Both valves were showing a leak and then after tightening they did not show any leak. i wonder how much freon would have leaked on a very hot day. The pressure went from 74 down to 40 in two days. I guess now I will have to check the a coil.
