    Pressure Gauge

    WoW!

    So I had to order some more R-0013 from tftestkits. I figured I would go ahead and get one of those fancy glycerin filled pressure gauges while I was at it. My original gauge at 1 1/2 years old is a bit sticky now and then and not really the most reader friendly because of the small size of it.

    Anyways, I just got it in the mail and I am IMPRESSED! This thing seems to be very high quality with a big gauge that is easy to read, in both Bar and PSI. Seems to be a great product for an excellent value.

    Now to put it on and give it a go to see how it works long term. There is even a little brass button on top to relieve any internal pressure so that you can get the most accurate reading possible.

    Pics really dont do it justice.

    Wait, you're saying they make gauges you don't have to tap repeatedly to ensure a proper reading?

    Re: Pressure Gauge

    I bought one last year and my PB asked how much I paid for it. He couldn't believe it, he thought it cost at least $40.00 and that it was was one of the nicest he had seen in awhile. I love mine. It is so easy to read and works flawlessly.

    Re: Pressure Gauge

    I just ordered a gauge along with the TF100 test kit. I concur it is a very nice gauge. Even nicer considering the price. I have bought glycerin filled gauges before and this is a super value for a quality piece.

    Re: Pressure Gauge

    Just the fact that it only goes to 30psi instead of 60psi is an improvement. On top of that it is bigger and glycerin filled. So much easier to see pressure changes.

    Those glycerin gauges are the way to go. They last much longer than the other types I've had in the past and they are more accurate.

    I took my original off and put one of these in before I even got started up.

    Re: Pressure Gauge

    I just ordered some reagent refills... wish I'd known these were available. I ordered a replacement gauge from amazon a few days ago.

    I thought that was how you're SUPPOSED to get a reading! Kind of like how my husband taps the screen of his phone with increasing pressure when it doesn't open apps fast enough.
