Do you/can you use both a bar. draft and a manual draft? Use them together? Shut down the manual draft and then let the baro do its thing father up the pipe?

I've used both together but only during extreme cold or extreme windy conditions. 95% of the time I use the barometric exclusively.. I sent you a private message. :)

Got it! Thanks again! When using them both, or at least they are both installed, do you just leave the manual wide open and then just let the Baro operate? Or should I take out the manual and put the Baro in its place?

I've used a manual pipe damper/MPD for years. This summer I'm changing to a baro due to what I've read on here.
