Leak in evap or condensor rads, restaurant walk in coolers, only ~ 5years old
Own several restaurant walk in coolers. New tenant of 2 years claims evap and condenser rads leaked. I believe they only had ~ 5 years of total use ( previous tenant installed them).
Evap and condensers looked very clean, like new. System history is : ran for 3 years, then building vacant and thieves stole 4 ft of copper outside, system open for 3 years. Then repair and ~ 2 year run time with new tenant. Tenant says a refrigeration guy says being open to atmosphere for years caused corrosion. Does this sound reasonable? (Not a money issue as tenant is responsible for all repairs in lease)
After copper theft I wrapped pipe ends with aluminum foil to keep out bugs/dirt ( not a hermetic seal) . And stored compressor/condensor units indoors.
