Kerbos5 & Pickles, Wade and I do not do it exactly the same, which shows that there is more than one way to skin cat. I don't think that I ever get much higher than 10 inches unless it was when I first got the pump. I'm sure that I never get that much vacuum now. I have taken the gage out of the system and just look at the speed of flow. I see no need to rush. Gas comes out each time that I rack and I just don't worry about it. After racking three times, all the gas is gone. The primary purpose of the vacuum pump for me is to rack without lifting, or spilling, or sucking, etc. For me it is easy, clean racking and the degassing is a welcome benefit. Soon you will have your own system and you will wonder how you ever did it without the pump.
