Something I do (if someone has a good reason why this is not a good idea please tell me) is remove the bleeder screw and lightly coat the threads with Permatex sealer so that it does not suck air around the threads while vacuum is being applied. I found it works much better this way and there will not be any bubbles in the catch bottle when the air is out of the system, unlike the bubbles you can get from air leaking around the bleeder screw threads even when the air is out of the system.
