    Unscrew it, turn it face up and shake it good. Then screw a new one in it's place. Problem solved! I couldn't help myself.

    Use a little jacks lube on the threads (or a little Teflon tape) when installing the new pressure guage and only turn it in finger tight

    Will any pressure gauge work? or do I have to get the gauge from Intex? Where can I get a new gauge if I don't have to have an Intex one?

    Most pool stores have them as well as Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. I use a 0-30 PSI one. If you want a good one you an get a filled gauge. Ebay has them.
