Ever since I removed it from the box and installed it on my stove! Waterford recommends -.04 WG but the fire fence in stove was embossed with -.06( maybe they are covering themselves in the side of caution ) ran it for 5 seasons with the I guess it's good enough setting on the baro ! It was set pretty close to where it is now.

Looks good Brother! It will prove to be a huge asset. Especially during warmer weather when draft pressure usually gets weak. It will warn you of impending draft failure so you can take steps to prevent the catastrophic occurrence lol...

Have you had draft failures in the past?
