WARNING
When refrigerant lines are disconnected you must IMMEDIATELY cap all openings to prevent the entry of moisture in the system resulting in contamination and corrosion of internal components. ALSO, minimize the amount of time that the system remains discharged by planning the job well before hand. No matter how well you cap the lines, some moisture is bound to enter and damage the system over time if it remains in a discharged state.
