All of us are happy it currently appears to be working form him. And all of us hope he continues to post yearly updates of how his system is working.

As contractors, many of us have seen the problems from when it didn't work. Or it only held the customer over for a year or 2. And then required more work to replace the system.

Hopefully he will continue to give us updates.

Easy Seal/ Super Seal


2014 UPDATE. Due to the much colder than normal temps in the northeast so far this year, its only really today with temps of near 90 that I can finally test my Trane 23 year old (or so) central air system after a hvac tech installed "Super Seal w/dryer" to fix a slow freon leak at the evaporator coil, about 2 years ago.

I can say that at this time the A/C is working just as it has the past 2 summers, cuts the the humidity and brings down the temperature within approx the same amount of time . There are no strange sounds or any abnormal actions that I can notice from the compressor. The fat line is still dripping wet /cold and the the small line is warm to the touch.

My original goal, since the system is so old, was really hoping to get 3 more summers of use , and so far, so good on this goal.

April 2015 Update. The Cliplight Super Seal Advanced 944KIT worked for 2 years and now am having to replace the entire Bryant evaporator coil since it no longer works.

I bought another can but it didn't work since the leak is probably bigger.

My suggestion is, if you have 10+ yr old A/C unit then try this before replacing it.

Which begs the question. Did it save you money, or cost you more money since a new coil today, will cost more then it would have 3 years ago.

Actually cheaper - previous evaporator coils were made of copper but these days they are made of aluminium and less prone to leaks!

They are less prone. But seldom cheaper.

The superseal could have saved him from getting a copper coil and having another leak.

Copper coils have been around 4 ever. Problem is they went thin on some of them. Some are very good. ADP coils are exellent. Aluminum is a soft metal and from vibration can leak easier than copper and cannot be repaired.

All depends on the manufaturers preference. Like Trane and their goofy spine fin coils. Some people like them and some heat em.

Easy Seal/ Super Seal


Update From 7/2012 Super Seal install. Its hard to believe so much time has passed already. Anyway, my original goal of 3 summers had been met, I am looking to see if I can get lucky and push it one more summer. So today, with northeast temps finally high enough to test out the now 24 year old trance A/C. .

I am happy to report that so far, even though not tested in 90 degree weather, the cold air did bring down the house temp in the usual time as prior years. Condensor big line is cold, wet. Compressor sound seems like normal, nothing strange. So if lucky, I will should get another summer out of unit.

I will note that the end of last summer, my condenser fan did not turn on, causing the compressor to run hot before I caught the problem and shut A/C down. My hvac service guy found the problem was faulty contact and replaced it, along with fan capacitor (it tested on the border line). So I am really hoping this compressor can make it over the finish line. Will update status again end of summer.

Sounds like hit or miss with this stuff - definitely worth trying in old systems that aren't worth fixing properly.

Thank you for your dedication in keeping us updated over the past three years.
Very happy to hear the superseal performed so well for you!

I have used super seal for a long time and have had no bad experience with it on only slow leaks. The ones that leak a Lb or two a year.

in order to meat EPA requirements YOU! half to do something to keep your but out of jail with a sealer YOU have made an attempt to stop the leak and you are compliant. Again I have had no bad experience with it.

good luck
