So I get 55 psi.

So what makes you think 60 psi is not correct?
Thanks very much for this. I was not getting my head around this thing and now that you have shown me the math I think I am.
I did not know if my 60 psi was right, wrong or indifferent. It was simply a guess on my part.
So is the conscious that I should lower my psi to 55 or just leave it as it is?

Thanks again
