    2 BluVacs and a Fieldpiece as a backup as nobody in town stocks BluVac.

    1.) Seems like unless u use a pliers you cannot get it tight to ensure a good seal. 2.) When I take the unit off, sometimes it wont go back to atm (i have a case so it not like im abusing it with tossing it around). 3.) when it is on my manifold and i shut the valve for just the micron gauge it goes up quickly (i am on my 3rd one). We have had a guys bluevac on there and slight, change if any. But i dont want to buy a bluevac because i dont have 300 just laying around.

    You can get a brand new BluVac micro for less than 100 bucks
    Same accuracy as the big ones.
