You can only pull the amount of vacuum that the pump is designed for.
Our pumps are rated between 22 -24 of vacuum.
I have never seen or heard of a glass carboy imploding due to excessive vacuum.
I still suggest using the precision vacuum valve to reduce vacuum to get better efficiency out of the filter cartridge
I was using that in reference to ( lostacres said he was saying to use as a pump for pressure, not using it as a vacuum, my reference was not about implode, but about explode as he would be pumping pressure instead of vacuum, also I have learned that no matter good or how bad something is, there is always a un-forseen area that something will go wrong,, as MURPHY's Law states. as far as myself I would never run either a pressure or vacuum system without a safety valve of some kind. hope this made my comment better understandable.
