I've dug on the forum for answers but I'm not finding anything close enough to my situation, so here goes.
1) Stove: LL Pioneer bottom vent
2) Manometer permanently mounted between stove and baro
3) Baro set to .04 on the horizontal scale.
4) SWG PV with rheostat
1) When setting the PV speed. I got the stove up to full tilt, full bed of glowing hot coal (quite hot). I was told to dial the PV up/down until the baro was barely fluttering. What is this? this open at the bottom of the baro 1", 1/2", etc.?
2) What is the acceptable draft range that won't kill my family? .04 to .06? .03-.06?
3) I tried this: Had a full bed of coals, stove is crankin', and I used the rheostat (pot?) to dial in .04 on the manometer. Problem was, the PV seems to speed up significantly when dialing this unit up, just fine adjustments can cause big speed swings.
4) I was told, that during a full burn, the baro would be slightly fluttering, but on low burn, the baro would be open more. What I found was, when I set the PV to just a flutter at full burn, during lighter burns, the baro is still just fluttering.
5) What has been your typical stack temps? Since I've been monkeying around, the stack temps have gone up. Not to the point that would be super hot, but much hotter than before (because I was seriously over drafting through the baro).
6) What's the micro adjust inside the rheostat of the PV for?
Thank you for your time. Have a good night.
