Bought my complete surge bucket assembly the other day....and that leaves the vacuum pump. I'm not mechanically inclined. The only pump I've ever used for anything is a $50 air pump that plugs into my cars AC adapter for filling up my car tires. Through other threads I'm pretty sure I know the size pump I need, but I don't know what connections a standard vacuum pump even has...and I don't want to buy the wrong pump. I'm pretty sure I need a gauge and a regulator, which if I build a balance tank would go on it. But in the case I do not build a balance tank for the time being, do most vacuum pumps come standard with a fitting to hook up a gauge and a regulator, or how does that work? Never used a vacuum pump really, so I don't know how the CFM is managed. Is there a dial to set the pressure you want or what? Most pumps I've been looking at on ebay don't come with a gauge, and I don't know if they come with a regulator or what. Can someone enlighten me on how and where the gauge and regulator go and work so that I know if I'm buying the right pump? Again, I think I know the size to get...I think...but I don't know how and where all the fittings and such are for gauges and the regulator. Thanks.
