    TFP Glycerin filled pressure gauge

    I need a new gauge and noticed these on the website. I live in ohio and noticed they are rated to -4 degrees. Does anyone in the northern states have one of these gauges? Just not sure if will make it through the winter. I quess if all else fails I could just take it inside each winter and reinstall in the spring.

    I *ahem* intentionally left mine outside this winter for testing. Yeah... testing. Still works this spring. I would recommend bringing it inside though.

    Thanks for the quick reply. As I was typing the question it dawned on me to just bring it in in the winter. I normally would just leave the old one in during the winter. Im sure your winters are a tad more brutal than mine.

    If your filter isn't under roof, be sure to plug the hole when you remove the gauge to keep rain water out.
