    ok to leave pressure gauge on gas line?

    I inspected a new house today and found a Bramec gas pressure gauge on the gas line in crawl space. Gauge is a real gas gauge but I thought there were supposed to be removed b/c they are not meant for long-term service. Should be removed, right?

    See gauge here: http://www.bramec.com/categories/detail.asp?cat=2108

    sounds to me like someone was doing a pressure test and left their gauge on just a thought

    There is no real reason for it to be there. Call the plumber that did the line install. He'd probably like to get his gauge back
