Probably the most overlooked part of a DC system is the blast gates. Like the rest of the DC system, all parts MUST be airtight. Home made blast gates are notorious for leaking and the slightest air leak will degrade any DC system by quite a bit. In use, only one blast gate should be open, allowing for the maximum air flow from that machine; BUT; make sure you always have one blast gate open or you can collapse the ductwork.
