Thread: Replacing pressure gauge

    Replacing pressure gauge

    I noticed that my pressure gauge has moisture in it. It still works but I was thinking of replacing it with a glycerin filled one from this site.

    1. It says freeze protected to -4F. I live in PA and it can get lower than that but not often or for extended periods of time. Should I not use this gauge?

    2. Will this gauge work on all Hayward filter models?

    Re: Replacing pressure gauge

    I was thinking of doing the same. I have a intex pump and sand filter and i think my current gauge tops out at 60psi. Really? Why so high? Im gonna get the 30psi one from TFTestkits. I dont think my filter has pressure over 30psi. Atleast i hope not!
