    Not all schools are the same. Go to a school that gives you 50/50. 50% lecture and 50% lab work, which is the same as on the job training. I went to one and I'm doing a lot on my own right now. ...

    You're right, it doesn't matter if it doesn't have a leak but if it did then you'd be sucking in non-condensables in a vacuum. You want to leave it at a positive pressure to avoid that.

    Because you don't want to suck in non-condensables if it has a leak. It can cause contamination in the system if it has a leak.
