    Pressure Test Tools

    Just thought I would show what I have for measuring pressure switches and gas pressure. Put everything in a Klein canvas pouch including wrench and allen wrench so everything needed is altogether.







    Get some high temp silicone tubing from an auto parts store.

    Usually 1/8th inch pipe will take care of most gas pressures. Have a 1/4 inch pipe for some oddball stuff. With a 1/2 inch coupling and a 1/2 x 3/4 coupling to measure gas pressure at the drip legs.
