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.
The only complaint I have, and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the scale. It's a little small and each mark is about 2.5 psi, not 2 or 5, so it's a little weird to count, especially for a consumer, but other than that, it seems good and has worked for it's intended purpose.
Remember, if you buy one, to measure pressure at the lowest point in the house if you're working with the water company since the upper floors and what they care about for the delivery pressure. I measured at the entry point to the building, after the meter but before any splits that might reduce local pressure.
I had been experiencing plumbing problem with my house where we purchased new 5 years old. First, the toilet starts to leak (meaning the valve doesn't shut off the water and over-flown) then the dish washer valve leaked... then the shower valves... then, eventually, our water filtration system burst and destroyed one of the walls in our garage. If we would have purchased this gauge and check our pressure periodically, we would have avoided all the above problems! When the gauge showed that my house's water line pressure was 140 psi, I couldn't believe my eyes and I first thought this gauge was broken, but after confirming with my neighbor's pressure, I was so nervous about the pressure and had the regulator replaced within 24 hours to prevent further damages.
If your shower makes you feel really good with all the water pounding on your back, get this gauge and check your house pressure! Because that's what happened in our house! The water pressure sucks now but it could save us money on water bill... especially during this drought in California.
This inexpensive gauge provided me with the information I needed to diagnose the problem, and it worked well.
Before attaching the product to the hose bib, I made sure the washer was installed correctly and pushed down. No leaks or fluid in the gauge. Will use this as needed elsewhere in the house
