    Hello all,

    I want to have a testing kit so I can test my unit WITHOUT calling the tech over. I saw they use a pointy pressure gauge and thermometer and pushed it through the P/T plugs to test the water temp and pressure. They also test the Air supply and air return temps.

    Is there something I can buy for novice use (name/brand/Sold on Amazon)? Not to expensive as the pro use.

    Thanks.

    just a thermometer tells you a lot about your geo performance. You also want a pressure gauge. which can be as simple as a gauge attached to a basketball inflation needle.

    GoHuskers.. did you order and find any of these perfect for what you need.. I am a non pro and would love to have the pt pressure and temp gages and like you dont want to spend 2-300 bucks.. but 75 or 80 would be ok.... any experince you had with this order would be appreciated.

    You can find pre-made geothermal test port pressure gauges on ebay for around $35. Search for [geothermal test port gauge]. For temperature all you need is a digital meat thermometer with the small diameter probe. You can find these on ebay or at Wal-Mart or Amazon for less than $20.
