    Yes just sipping, monitor your IP gauge when it just dips take the ready, do it a few times and take the average of the readings.

    With a pump (Regulator test rig you don't need to suck.), a digital gauge would work fine. With your mouth, there's just too much flicker for digital to let you see the cracking moment.

    With the data trace on you should be able to easily identify the peak negative pressure just before the valve cracks open and the pressure increases. Right?
