Parts to replace gauge glass?

I want to buy some parts to have on hand for repairing my guage glass if it breaks.  Pexsupply.com has new glass as well as a $20 cutter for them.  They also have gaskets but everything is wal-rich brand.



Does this matter?



My gauge glass is a conbraco.   What parts should I have other than the glass tubes and rubber gaskets?

    Slip washers.

    You might need to replace those slip washer from time to time, especially if they're steel, because they'll rust. Try to get brass or stainless. You can't always tell by looking at them, so take a magnet with you when you go shopping.
