This is a common problem from on of two user errors:
* Not installing a washer into the gauge's hose fitting
* Improperly installing the washer into the fitting.
Inside the gauge's hose fitting is a hollow brass stem with a wide lip at the end. Often, people will incorrectly push the washer over this lip so that the washer surrounds the body of the stem, since the lip isn't that much wider than the inner diameter of the washer.
Doing so fails to properly seal the meter from the hose fitting, resulting in the meter filling with water.
As you can see in the attached photo (or the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Br5D_tx_YVI), the washer is supposed to sit *on top of* the lip instead of being pushed over the lip onto the stem.
When the washer is properly installed, the gauge should not fill with water.
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.
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.
