    Pressure Gauge Replacement

    Hi Everyone,

    When my filter is off, the pressure gauge only goes back down to around 2, not 0. When the filter is on, the gauge seems to be working fine and reads 15-16 (Just opened the pool and its gotten to 18 but bumping brings it right back down to 15).

    Should I replace it? Wasn't sure if the fact that it stays at 2 when the pump is off is giving me inaccurate readings.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I think it would be best to replace it. No telling if is still showing the correct pressure relative to 2psi instead of 0. A liquid filled gauge is better, but costs a little more. You can find the non-liquid ones for under $10.
