    Replacing pressure gauge on a Jandy DEL60 Pool Filter

    My current pressure gauge works fine, but it is almost impossible to read because the plastic lens is so cloudy so I would like to replace it. Can i replace just the gauge, or do i need to purchase the complete air gauge release assembly. I see that the gauge can be purchased separately, but it isn't immediately obvious to me how the gage is removed from the housing.

    Looking at the exploded parts diagram from Pool Parts Online it appears that the gauge is a standard back mount gauge. You can pick up one from tftestkits.net for about half the price and it is a great gauge.

    Re: Replacing pressure gauge on a Jandy DEL60 Pool Filter

    I bought oil filled stainless steel gauges online for less than $10 each. Since shipping is more than the gauge, I ordered several at a time and gave one to each of my neighbors who have pools and keep a couple extra around. Even accounting for the shipping cost they are still a bargin for a quality gauge. They are avail with both rear mount and bottom mount.

    Here is where I bought them.

    Re: Replacing pressure gauge on a Jandy DEL60 Pool Filter

    For future reference, the Jandy DEL60 Pool filters take a 2" pressure gage, and not the 2 1/2" tftestkits.net sells. I should have measured the existing one before I ordered the new one because it doesn't fit in the housing.

    There is a housing? I had not seen that. You could just get a brass nipple extension and offset the gauge.
