"Just wanted to let you know we were on a service call for a customer's freezer in a tight kitchen environment, that would not hold temp. Looking from the rear we could see where others has tried quart "squirt" sprayers with coil cleaner and had actually pushed the grease to the rear where it re-solidified and would have been hard to reach & clean. I purchased a CoilJet for residential use, and wanted to let you know it was great in giving the pressure needed to "melt" the grease from the condenser coil in place, we used a large bake pan under the unit to catch run off, and their freezer was back in business in 20 minutes. Quick and convenient."
