Essentially, 5 means there is zero room for error caused by humans or storms. That's why 7 is preferred at that LOA. Also, 7 allows for temporary removal for work as necessary, although, personally I would install 9, then remove 2.

Since we hauled just before H-Sandy, we currently have 14. (9 would be typical for us)
