What causes pressure to increase
[attachment=2480]

Here is an example of a HA not increasing the pressure and an example of a flow limit event causing an increase in pressure. Why?

What causes the flow limit events? I have many spikes and cannot figure what is causing them.

HuhDont-knowI am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay

the short answer is "because it's programmed to behave that way".

Thanks palerider,
While the short answer, it's the best. I think everyone should view the YouTube video before asking too many questions

Thanks
