Adding a Low Pressure Gauge

Can I put a T fitting on the Pressuretrol pigtail and mount a low pressure gauge so the Pressuretrol and gauge share the pigtail? Or is it better to have a separate pigtail for each.

    you can,
    it's done all the time.
    The low pressure gage will tell you what the Ptrol is seeing.

    Yes. Much the easiest way to do it. There are perfectly valid arguments to be made about the advantages of both approaches -- but for simplicity, the T/single pigtail works just fine.
