Subject: Re: Adding a head pressure gauge to my Brewtus
 

I am not familiar with the Brewtus, I have only ever worked inside one and that was well over a year ago.  But...  All HE (I refuse to say Exchanger starts with an X)machines with a single pump are roughly the same.  In stead of cutting a copper pipe, I would just add the T fitting in next to another T fitting somewhere.  If you follow the outlet from the pump it will T off to the relief valve (OPV to this forum) then it will T off between the HE inlet injector and the Boiler Fill Solenoid Valve.  If you get your new T added in somewhere between that last T and the Fill Sol.Valve, it will be as far from the pump as possible and less jerky while the pump is running.
As for what gauge to use, I don't have any idea.  Measure the size of the hole the current one sits in and ask around about duals of the same diameter.  (Also be aware of depth, some dual gauges are twice as deep as single gauges).
Oh, and sorry for taking so long to respond.  I only joined last night. (Not sarcasm, I'm just being goofy)
