    DE Filter Pressure Gauge needing to be replaced

    Dear all,

    I noticed the pressure gauge for my D.E. filter starting to leak air lately and want to replace it. However, after several trips to the local pool stores and hours of searching the viable option online, I have yet to find the suitable replacement part. I am hoping the experts on this forum can help me to identify the right type of pressure gauge (& assembly/air relief valve) for my D.E. filter. Any suggestion/advise are welcomed and very much appreciated.

    My filter is Pac Fab Nautilus Stainless Steel 48sf D.E. Filter, but I am not sure about the manufactured date or model #. However, I know the filter was installed before 1995. I have also attached the picture of the pressure gauge below. Thanks again for your advice in advance.

    Thanks so much for the quick replay, but it does not seem to have the air relief valve that will fit my filter.

    Now I can see it, it looks like a standard air bleed assembly like on my pentair sand filter.
    It has a brass double side threaded screw that goes into the top of the filter then the plastic piece had the built in air bleed plastic screw and you add the pressure gauge

    You're welcome, Glad I could help. You should be able to walk into any pool store and pick that up.
