    2" PVC fitting with hole for pressure gauge. Does it exist?

    As I plumb the new pad...just a thought.

    Does a coupling or tee exist that you could screw in a pressure gauge for evaluation or troubleshooting? Would it be desirable to have some of these in various places on the pad?

    You could make one by using a tee and a slip/thread bushing, but maybe it would cause turbulence and restrictrion to flow...

    You'd probably normally run with a plastic plug in the port, and just screw in the gauge when testing.

    They make reducing tees you could adapt to threaded and screw a gauge in there. It'd be handy for troubleshooting but not sure how many times you'd actually have a use for them.
