Works great!

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

Used the gauge to check the city water pressure coming into the home. The gauge includes a follower that will show the highest pressure encountered so you can leave it connected and come back later to see what the max pressure in the system was. After using the gauge, I've measured the pressure at 90# and decided that I should add a pressure regulator to my water system to make sure I'm not over stressing my interior plumbing components. Gauge is well made and doesn't leak.

Pressure Test Guage (Must Have)

By Silver Cheetah

from New Jersey (MonouthCounty)

Verified Buyer

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

This gauge is perfect for checking the pressure on your boiler against the pressure gauge to make sure you have the correct pressure. I would recommend purchasing a pressure gauge and temperature gauge all in one.

Does the job

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

I have this gauge installed on the tank I use for my hydronic heating system & it works just fine. The peak pressure indicator is quite useful but it would also be nice to include a needle for recording a dip in pressure as well. Overall it seems reasonably well built & should work for a long time.

just what I was looking for and more

By Handyman

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

I used this guage to test my water pressure when I installed a water pressure regulator. I did not realize when I purchased this unit that it has a peak needle to indicate peak pressure while you are not watching the guage. So you are able to see instantly what your pressure is and leaving the guage on the water line you can go back the next day to see if the pressure has increased since you last looked at it.

Great gauge

By Stuntman

from KS

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

Works well. A great way to verify pressures before installing an R.O. system, or just checking pressure drops. The only downside is the red floating needle will only allow the user to log max pressure readings. It would be nice if the needle was allowed to also measure minimum pressures.

Comments about Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread:

This gauge was inexpensive and seems to work very well. No problems at all. I'm an amateur, so it doesn't see a lot of use (or rattling around in a toolbox), but it works fine for me.

  • Water Test Gauge, 3/4" Hose Thread

    Q:

    After the 3/4" hose connection, is this a 1/4" male NPT thread? I have been unable to find a 1/4" thread gauge with a Max Pressure pointer, so I'll need to disassemble one.

      I’m a lousy judge of thread size/types, but I’d guess you are correct.

      A:

      It is a 3/8" male NPT thread. So it is the 3/4" hose bib to 3/8" female on the adapter. The guage has a male 3/8" NPT thread as well to accept the connector. I have this item on my boiler and it comes with the guage and adapter.

    Q:

    What do you mean when you say to connect the gauge to the hose bib? Where is it located?

      A:

      Traditionally, hose bibs are found outside the home...it is where garden hoses are connected. They are also found as drains for things like hot water heaters, well expansion tank drains etc..

      A:

      You can connect it to the outside faucet or the drain in the hot water heater. These would be the two most common places. You could have more in the home like the water hooks for the laundry or if a plumber has installed a connection some where else. Hope this helps.

      A:

      A hose bib is a threaded faucet also known as a wall hydrant. These are
      generally located on the exterior of the house but can be found on the
      interior. This gauge would fit any faucet that you can connect a garden
      hose to.

      A hose bib is any point that you could attach a hose. An outdoor faucet or washing machine faucet are examples.

      A:

      The hose bib is the section of the outdoor faucet that is threaded. This is where you would attach a garden hose. If the instructions are refering to attaching the pressure guage to a heating system then you would find a boiler drain that has this type of thread at the end of it. Boiler drains come in a variety of styles but will have a handle to shut off the water before the section where you attach a hose or guage (hosebib).

      You can screw the gauge where your green outside garden hose screws into, or any other locations.

      A:

      The gauge is outfitted with a standard hose fitting (as opposed to pipe threading), meaning it will screw on wherever you would generally attach a garden hose (ie. outdoor water spigot or water heater drain bib).

      The hose bibb is where you would normally connect a hose, typically located outside.
