Replace a pressure Gauge

Postby Jo » Thu 26 Jul, 2007 12:50

Hi,

My pressure gage died on me the other day. It's a sand filter that I inherited when I bought the house. To replace the gage, other than turning off the pump, do I need to do anything else?

Thanks, Ben

You may need to be quick while doing it. The water may naturally want to flow, even though the pump is off. You may also need a liitle pipe dope or teflon tape so it won't leak.

Nope. Put your filter on "closed" first if you have such a position. Dont buy the cheap guages from the pool store...they rust out in a season. Get a nice stainless steel one from Grainger or McMaster and it will last forever.
