dual manometer

Paul_69 Member Posts: 251
I have a digital dual manometer and has hoses and fittings for checking gas valves.the taps on manometer and hoses are a little smaller than pressure switch hoses on gas furnaces. Is there a way to hook this meter to dothat as this is why I bought it, to do both. Thx

    You can usually find universal tubing couplers at hardware stores. They are stepped so you can connect different hose sizes together.

    Or at auto parts stores. They usually have a bigger selection.

    Without hoses and connections, modern automobiles can't operate.

    Most meters have 1/4" hoses on them. 5/16" hoses seal to most gas valves.

    a 1/4" x 5/16" barb coupler and a foot of 5/16" hose will do the trick.

    Nice Tim. They do have "T's for attaching with different tubing.
