              Bought three of these and every one of them failed before a years time. The pressure on all three showed over 40 psi but no release of 30 pound relief valve. Replaced all three with Wikai and now have accurate and reliable readings.

                          This was a great product. It read good values for the temperature and pressure for about a year then leaked all over the place through the housing. No cracks in the housing, not over tightened.

                                I have a Buderus G115/28 boiler with a Beckett AFG burner. The original tridicator was ENFM but an unknown model. My service person mentioned that the tridicator was sticking and should be replaced. The repair cost was approximately $800 to purge the system and replace the tridicator ($200). It seemed to be alot of money for a $30 item and turning off some water valves.

                                After researching and getting some points from the service person. I purchased this tridicator and installed it. It was nice that the threads were already Teflon taped. I installed it after shutting off a few water supply valves and drawing down a gallon of water in bucket. Returned the valves to their normal position and opened the water and supply valves. There a was an air purge. Before I fired up the furnace, I checked the tridicator and was reading below 20lbs (The gauge marking below 20lbs is hard to read).

                                So far, everything is working properly and I would recommend this product. However, I have no experience at all with this or any other heating system. This DIY was my first time.

                                            I use two of these to monitor pressure and temperature in my radiant and solar-assisted DHW system. Appears to be very accurate and reliable so far.

                                                          1. How should I attach it to the 1 inch self made manifold? Where can I find the adapter (the tee I guess). I spent half of the night looking without success.
                                                          2. Its stick is 0.9 deep. What is the minimum depth it should go inside the manifold? Should it touch the bottom of the pipe (the manifold) or half of the pipe is enough?

                                                          Thank you

                                                            We just reduced it down with a standard 1inch to ¾, then another standard fitting like a female into the ¾ to a half or something. I'm no pro but did build a 5 zone mixed down heat ring and have a few of these on it. Some on the hot side, some in my hot water recirc and one in the mixed down side and they all work well. The temp is picked up if its not exactly in the stream.

                                                            You need to add a 1 x 1 x 1/2 copper Tee to your manifold and then buy a 1/4 in FPT x 1/2 in bushing from your local plumbing-hydronic supply store. Its called a gauge bushing and they are very common for hydronic boiler installations. I don't know if Pex Supply carries them or not but they should along with their Tri-dicator gauges. Using this bushing and the Tee your gauge will be just the right depth inside your Tee for a good indication of temperature and pressure.

                                                            I installed these right before the manifold (in my system between the pump

                                                            are using 1” pipe, just go to a local building supply (Lowes) and get a
                                                            1x1x1 tee. Splice the tee into your line and then solder on a ‘1” solder
                                                            to 1” FPT’ fitting adapter onto the remaining tee. You then use a bushing
                                                            (or a combination of bushings) to reduce the FPT to the ¼” that is needed.
                                                            I was able to find a 1” MPT to ¼” FPT so it was only a single bushing.
                                                            It does not need to be inside the manifold, you are getting pressure and
                                                            temp so close to the actual manifold that you will see little difference.

                                                            I have done the same thing. I'm assuming the manifold is copper. I needed
                                                            to use a 1x1x1/2fpt bronze tee and then use a 1/2x1/4 bushing. This gave a
                                                            connection that put the end of the gauge in the middle of the flow through
                                                            the tee. Bronze tees are not cheap but copper tees are not thick enough to
                                                            thread. Sweat the copper to the tee and then the bushing and gauge thread
                                                            in. Hope this helps.

                                                            I simply put a tee in my manifold (I put one on the outflow and one on the
                                                            return so I could see the temperature drop). I then put an adapter in the tee
                                                            so that I could thread the gauge into the tee. I tried to size the nipple
                                                            coming out of the tee and the adapter so that the end of the gauge was in the
                                                            middle of the pipe. Seems to work well.

                                                            I bought the threaded adapter from either Menards or Home Depot in the Plumbing section.  Look in the brass fitting.  Screwed that adapter into a female thread sweat on tee into the system.  The probe is suppose to go into the main pipe flow and not touch the wall of the opposite side.

                                                            No. This should just be a threaded fitting. You will need a threaded fitting that slides into a 1/2" copper tee that comes off your water line.

                                                            You probably have to install a 1/2" x 1/4" copper by female bushing either
                                                            on the branch or on the run of the tee and then screw in the gauge.

                                                            It will screw into an standard ¼"npt female adapter . the gauge you are replacing may have a specific well housing that you are referring to.
                                                            This gauge is temperature and pressure so it would not work if screwed into a dry well.
