        I bought these to install on the heat runs for radiant floor heat. I installed them on bare 1" copper pipe. The installl took maybe a minute for both thermometers. No sure of the accuracy because they are contact temperature of the pipe. Adding a little pipe insulation around the thermometrs seems to help. But to get the temperature difference of supply and return these will work great.

        After 2 weeks on backorder, I received an "updated" version of this unit. The temperature scale reads from 0F to 248F, unlike the original unit.. 70F to 200F, and the maximum pipe-fit diameter decreased a lot. When strapped directly next to the temperature gauge on my heating boiler that read 190F, this unit read 140F.. so I question the accuracy of using this or ANY strap-on style thermometer. Maybe the pipes do not get as hot as the water inside, since the surrounding air is so much cooler. Who knows for sure?

              Gauge works alright, off by about 5*F on 2" copper. I wasn't expecting it to be perfect so it works for me. Don't expect to get it anytime soon by paying for 2 day shipping, still took 7 days to arrive.

                    Bought the five pack and before using them I had them all on the same water pipe overnite. All 5 basically read the same temp within a couple of degrees HOWEVER, when I benchmarked them against a known temperature, they appeared to read approx 10-15% higher than actual. So if accuracy is vital, I would reco going with another more sophisticated product.

                          The temperature reading is accurate, but the thermometer itself is made entirely of plastic and is therefore quite overpriced.

                                      This is the second inaccurate thermometer I have received from Pex Supply. This unit does not advance beyond 120F. I have an accurate meter to verify the readings.

                                                  These guages are not very accurate even with the use of thermal grease. They read significantly lower temperatures when the water temperatures are above 160 degrees. They are easily moved when positioned. The only nice feature is that they can be moved to deterrmine relative temperatures in a system.

                                                        I ordered five, three worked OK, two refunded promptly.
                                                        The three don't jibe exactly, but are certainly close enough for what they're for.

Maybe the pipes do not get as hot as the water inside, since the surrounding air is so much cooler. Who knows for sure?

The temperature INSIDE the piping may be significantly different. If the pipe material doesn't conduct "heat" very well, the readings may be meaningless.
