The picture shows the sender unit in my water tank. Does this unit unscrew.?
With all the collective knowledge available here I'm sure someone will know how to remove them.

Don't know. Have you tried asking the KK folks? Do you have a brand name that you could google for info?

If there are no mounting screws around the perimeter, which i don't see then it is threaded in. Usually a 1.5" thread body.

Brian...
My guess and I'd put money on it - is that this unit screws in... no visible screws on the outside dia.
I have seen a flanged design w/ a cover that hid the screws but from the photo it doesn't look like a removable cover.
I'm also guessing the raised center section provides surfaces to assist unscrewing by using an adjustable wrench.

Is there any brand indicated on the gauge that might provide a clue to the manufacturer?

Thanks to all for your help, I am advised that it does unscrew.
