And it's fairly cheap.

It does give a reading, but given the above, I have grave doubts that it's anything like accurate.
Jeffrey D. Williams
This is so much better than the type that they sell at Home Depot and or Lowe's.

I used the water pressure gauge to check my home water pressure prior to installing a hot water heater and expansion tank. It is important to know the home water pressure so you can adjust the air pressure in the new expansion tank to the correct cold water pressure psi. Expansion tanks come charged with air, so adjusting the the expansion tank air pressure is not always necessary. The cold water inlet pressure psi should equal the expansion tank air pressure psi. The Rain Bird P2A Water Pressure Gauge worked perfectly and the price point is excellent. The cold water inlet pressure can fluctuate. Follow the directions that comes with the hot water heater and expansion tank. Use this pressure gauge on a home cold water faucet with a hose connection. Follow the directions that are enclosed with the pressure gauge.

I bought this Rain Bird P2A Water Pressure Gauge because I need to measure the water pressure in the house before deciding on various types of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filtering system. If your water pressure is above 45 PSI, then you can buy a RO system without a pressure pump, which is more costly.

This water pressure gauge is great. I attached it to the faucet that normally connects to my washing machine's water inlet via a rubber hose. You must install the provided O-Ring correctly so that there will be no water leakage. There is no instruction on how to do this. You should tighten the gauge to the faucet using a wide-opening plier.

If you get water inside the meter face, it is not normal. You should get it replaced. This does not happen to mine. As stated on the web page, this thing is NOT returnable because it is a closeout item.

Received what I thought was a higher quality than I ordered. Thanks! Gauge was what I needed for an occasional check of my water pressure.

Just screw this onto any standard male threaded hose end or 3/4 threaded pipe end and you get a pressure reading. Seems to be solid construction. Has a rubber washer for a pressure fit and no tape needed.

I have copper plumbing throughout the house but water pressure was low inside the house, i.e., could not use 2 faucets at the same time. Then I adjusted the "Pressure Reducing Valve" on the supply line and got enough pressure. I wanted to check the water pressure to make sure "Pressure Reducing Valve" is set to the right level. So I bought this unit (instead of paying a plumber to just check water pressure!).

I connected the gauge to a garden hose hookup point, and it showed 112 psi. I was pretty sure that reading is wrong. Anyway, I adjusted the Pressure Reducing Valve all the way to the lowest pressure and confirmed water pressure was in fact very low at kitchen and bathroom faucets. Then connected the gauge again, and it showed 112 psi. It always goes up to 112 psi and stops irrespective of the water pressure I set.

Update: Apparently the water pressure reducing (PRV) was malfunctioning. After sometime water pressure at home became very insistent. Finally, I replaced the water pressure reducer valve. It cost me a good money for the parts and labor. Now the water pressure is under control, and the gauge show the correct reading. I adjusted pressure to 55 psi.

First time i used it, the glass filled with water. I called Rainbird and got their robo voice and kept on hold for 45 minutes. There is no way to message them or get any help whatsoever or to return it. My faith in ANYTHING made by them has dropped now. I bought this when the price was higher too. AVOID THIS ITEM IT IS JUST A HEADACHE, NOT A SOLUTION.

Purchased to read pressure on four outdoor faucets, but could get a reading on none of them because the gauge leaked like mad every time. Fiddled with the thing forever trying to re-seat the washer and tighten the connection, but no joy. Utter rubbish. I expect a proper gauge costs considerably more. Avoid this one, in any case.

I guess you get what you pay for. This gauge leaks like a sieve and the lens immediately fills up with water. It does give a reading, but given the above, I have grave doubts that it's anything like accurate. Definitely do not use indoors (unless you like cleaning up water).
