    P/T port testing tools

    Have any of you accessed your p/t ports on your systems? If so, what did you use?

    Thanks.

    Did you ever find out what gauge and temp. probes are needed from Waterfurnace? I'm needing the same tools for account we picked up. I've heard that waterfurnace has a kit that you can get, but i have not had a chance to get a hold of them and looking to find a part number or site where i can buy them.

    We just moved into a house with a hydro delta mega tek geothermal unit and the HP light is on. It made a humming noise right before it stopped working. This is while the a.c. is running. Now the a.c. Kicks on but only runs for a few seconds before cutting off again. We don't know anything about this unit make or model number. Is there anything anyone can tell me about what may be the problem? We tried to contact an a.c. repair man but he said it would be 450 bucks to come out on a weekend. Any information is appreciated. Only been in the house 2 months.

    Call a tech, not many left that are familiar with the older HydroHeat Delta Mega-Tek (Quadro Therm or Protocol) geo-thermal heat-pump equipment. Very high end and very finicky. Hard to diagnose without the Banana Diagnostic Terminal, too.
    Humming noise could have been the main blower motor, board mounted water pump relays, etc. System may be married to a Hydro-Flow Center that contains one or two water pumps, but this would be separate from the unit itself. Nothing in there that a layman can quickly diagnose.

    Make sure who you call is familiar with water source heat-pumps....Good Luck

    The Cooper-Atkins model DPP400W-0-8 works fine on my daughter's Waterfurnace. It has a small tip that can be easily inserted in the PT ports.
    Old and in the way.

    Lube the probe with water based lubricant they will fit !
    They are tight and I always worry when pushing them in as Well I have never seen a temperature and pressure gauge that fits those in one unit I have a pressure gauge and remove it then insert thermometer

    Another note I also wouldn't recommend leaving probes inserted long term if you wanted change out fittings and use one of those CPI gauges with a tee
