I think this is a great idea and will use it if/when my pump switch fails. Those Square D pressure switches are very heavy duty and sold almost everywhere.

Is this a gauge that has a vent plug in the top? On those that do, the vent plug is supposed to be removed after installation. Readings can be quite erroneous if those type are not set up correctly....

*if* itís metric, and I donít know that it is, itís not measured that way. Metric bolt threads are measured by pitch, not count. An M8 bolt for example may have a thread PITCH of 1mm or 1.25mm.

The elbows don't look too bad, but the problem is that the real corrosion is going on inside. The only way to be sure is to pull the hose and look. I will say that in my experience, exhaust hoses are...

I believe the recommendation to re-torque is in the 120 manual. Its the 135 that must not be re-torqued. That is also in the manual.
