People that keep venting refrigerant into the atmosphere are going to get caught and fined. Refrigerant needs to be recovered not vented.

I don't have the means of obtaining that kind of equipment. And to recover the refrigerant was going to cost me $100. I don't want to intentionally destroy the ozone layer, but I'm also not made of money.

And adding refrigerant to meet certain pressures is not the recommended way to get correct refrigerant charge: charging BY WEIGHT is.

Go to a certified independent mechanic.
