If anyone on here has their a/c certification you'll remember that hfc 12/134 is heavier than air so if inhaled it stays in your lungs. Also you use a "sniffer" under the lines. I asked the instructor how could it affect the atmosphere if it sank? It's just dumb! Waterborne matches better. It's expensive though and has to be cleared. I think its all smoke and mirrors.

If my memory serves me right the original implementation of water based paints was going to be commercial shops only because they use such a large amount of paint hence the bigger environmental impact (LOL). As of now I don't think the plan is to roll it out to DIY'ers but who knows with our government. I don't see our local hardware and tractor stores carrying water based paints anytime soon ....

Does that mean I can use my Graco sprayer to shoot the tractors?
