gardian is on a distinguished road

I would like to ask about the Reference Pressure in CFX.
In case I have a system with buoyancy, Hydrostatic Pressure is not included in the Reference Pressure.
But when I have a system with the sensor at the highest Hydrostatic Pressure value is it legitimate to set there the Reference Pressure ignoring the gravity?
does CFX solves the equations ignoring this gravity effect?
the Absolute Pressure i see in the CFD-Post is the sum of the Reference and the Hydrostatic. and of course is higher than the Reference.
but my sensor tells me the Absolute there. how can I set the Absolute Pressure in the CFX-Pre?
