    I’ve used supco and CPS micron gauges. I hated them both after I got my BluVac
    LTE. Amazing gauges!

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    I bought the BlueVac Pro before bluetooth, so I'm not going to drop another $300 on a bluetooth version (although I love what I see with the app, decay test, etc). I may buy the micro as a secondary (use both at the same time, micro on the LL).

    But the thing I'd miss with the micro is the Leak Rate indicator.

    Those aren't the BT versions, are they?

    I've never used 2 at once. Do the readings eventually match, or is there always a difference in micron? I like the idea of one on Liq, one on suction (I generally put mine on the suction). With both ports taken, what do you do when you want to do an N2 sweep?

    When using two micron gauges, the gauge on the suction will always be higher.

    It's a vacuum thing. Bigger pipe has more molecules floating around.

    Weird, I know, but that's the way it is.

    All the new bluvacs have the app capabilities, but the leak rate, and decay test is not available on the micro.

    They all will graph.

    Yeah, I was just looking at the feature comparison. WHeneve rI buy another one, it'll probably be the LTE. I don't care about the pro features.

    I agree that it's not essential, but it's nice to have. Once your leak rate drops to 1.0, you're generally good. Of course, the app decay test is helpful too.

    Should be harder to clear the smaller line.

    When the microbluvac came out I bought about 25 of them for some of the guys. Great price point and awesome performance. It appears they have discontinued them in favor of adding wireless at a Pricepoint 2x higher... bummer
