    Be careful with the nylog, joeyd says it can't be removed from sensor, game over.

    Guess I should have read the Q&A section of the manual first.

    Also, I'm pretty conservative with the Nylog. I just dampen the outer rim of the flare fitting with my finger, I don't coat it.

    It was completely disconnected.
    Sorry I am late! Busy setting up for AHR. Exciting stuff happening.

    A slow rise to Hi-P is always caused by residual refrigerant gas trapped in the sensor housing, as indicated by others above. Even if you think there was no refrigerant present, it was there, somehow, possible trapped in the lining of your hose or elsewhere.

    Disconnect the BluVac and gently puff some air into it. The rise to Hi-P will be immediate.

    Have I wronged you in some way? Had you called me, I'd have helped you solve the problem personally and immediately.

    That was in response to my comment. I thought that maybe it was corrupted in transit (though I didnt state it here) and thought a recal might help.

    Nope, all is well, like I said, I missed the Q&A section of the instruction manual. Also, as Marc said, I was responding to one of his posts.
    I like it so far, just been too tied up with gas furnaces to really have a chance to play with it much.
