Used the 20 pumps method Grady suggested.
Instructions call for 10, is that correct? Going to 20 increases the sensitivity, is that right Grady?

was real quick on that pump like he was inflating a bike tire.
Yeah, someone trained him real good... or he can't read the instructions.

IMO 10 strokes as per instructions would be all that is required to get a proper smoke spot sample, more important is to have a draft regulator that is installed properly and set so it can maintain the over fire pressure under all outside conditions .

Riello burners hold their flame tighter & that causes it to look smaller. A Riello flame is generally brighter & lighter in color than other burners.

Hey Troop. By drawing twice as much flue gas through the paper you increase the sensitivity essentially by a factor of 2.

Yeah, someone trained him real good... or he can't read the instructions.
OH, you're supposed to read that paper work??? I thought it was to kneel on.

Combustion analyzer came late yesterday BUT...

still waiting on draft gauge and another home owners issue raised its ugly head.
A 70-80 ft multi trunked White Pine is creaking and its main base trunk shows since of split/stress. Spent half the day getting a bull rope as high as I could on that trunk while trudging around in 3-4 feet of snow. Great time!

Grady, I agree as I figure doing 20 newbie pumps is better then doing 10 newbie pumps.
Tomorrow, God willing this White Pine doesn't split in tonites snow changing to 3 hours of ice event, I gotta get this damaged trunk down before it splits all the way to the base and takes out the whole tree.
