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.

Thanks so much for the input. Just wondering if the final results were positive. I've seen wine loose some color after filtering, so how about taste...? Better, worth the effort?
