Now that makes sense to me Mr. Flash. I know this info is available around here somewhere, I just couldn't find it. I apologize for being redundant. Is there a metal barb available that I could thread into my stove pipe, and cap it off when the manometer tube is disconnected? Don't think I want the meter exposed 24-7 in my main foyer. I'll watch it for a week or 2, then put it away, and hook it up when I need to know the draft. Or am I looking at this the wrong way?

As far as leaving the manometer hooked up all the time, the face is so big, there's no where to hide it. Being plastic, if I mount it directly behind the stove, I'm afraid it will melt. In an unfinished cellar installation, mounted away and on a wall, it wouldn't bother me, but not in my living area.
