About how much pressure should one use to test low and high sides respectively? I did a quick test today with 35 on low (it held for as long as I let it).

On the high side I went up to 100 but it always dropped down to about 35 after about 15 seconds. It would then sit at 35 for as long as I left it. I did have as many fittings sprayed with soapy solution but I couldnít see any obvious bubbles. I will be doing a more thorough soap and visual leak test next time.

PS even though Iím opening up the system to replace drier, exp, compressor - I still vacuumed the system after I was done pressure teasring in order to remove moisture.

Should I leave it at vacuum in the meantime - until I test or replace components next?
