Number 6. Leakage and clogging prevention

Both leaks and clogs will lead to pressure and flow fluctuations. So when you see a pressure/flow change, this is often the reason.

But as they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Although monitoring flow and pressure is critical (there are other components that can cause the variation), taking preventative measures to prevent leaks and clogs will hopefully minimize the occurrence of unwelcome flow/pressure fluctuation surprises later.
