one is not supposed to release 134 to the atmosphere. I've heard AC techs say that you can release (via a hose) into water and not violate EPA regulations.
Do you know the pressures you're supposed to have (high and low side) ? If so, the wise thing to do would be to go ahead and invest in the pressure gage system for refrigeration/AC systems. We have one which we've used for the car and the house AC systems to check charge levels and wouldn't mess around w/o the gages unless absolutely necessary.
Best regards and good luck with your project.
