empty Jug Weight


Hey guys,
I want to find out how much R410a is left in the jug. Its the 25# pink jug. I imagine that this is standard all across the country. How much does this weigh empty?
Thanks!!

Out.

I decided to weigh it and write the weight on the tank every time I use it.

Thats 2 pounds heavier then my empty weighs. Different manufacturers use different compositions though.

Just a related question. How accurate are the readings on your scales? Is it necessary to have a hard, level surface on which to put the scale?

I use an actual refrigerant scale. It is accurate to 0.25oz. I use in on a pretty level surface.

Pretty much all scales(that you set the jug on) must be on a hard level surface to be accurate.
