      A:

      Hello C.B.
      Yes, it is battery-operated. I like the security of knowing what my
      pontoons' pressure is reading, and this gauge is a good price deal and
      functions as intended. However, the battery died after 2 years and I would
      have replaced it myself but could not access the recessed screw heads. I
      returned the unit to NRS for a replacement gauge.

      A:

      The gauge is powered by two button cell batteries. To access these batteries you must peel off the display cover and unscrew the three small screws to lift the cover. Make sure to put the batteries in correctly before putting it back together.

      Nope no battery, the air pressure in the raft, or other inflatable moves the gauge accordingly!

      A:

      I use this gauge on my Halkey-Roberts valves with a little electrical tape around the nozzle. Be sure to keep this guage dry, however. I didn't keep mine dry and the condensation in the screen makes it very hard to read and probably is not good for the circuits. I will go with a mechanical-actuating valve if I get another one.

      It only fits Leafield and military valves. The K-Pump Kwik Check Gauge, Item # 80082.02, works on Halkey-Roberts valves.

  • NRS Digital Pressure Gauge

    Q:

    I'm considering using this gauge to check the pressure on my Maravia raft floor, mainly because its T shape should allow easy reading from directly above the valve. (Most other gauges require me to put my face down close to the floor to read them.) The recommended pressure of the floor is 1-1.5 psi. Is this gauge functional and accurate in that low range?

      The gauge starts reading at 1.5 psi; it doesn't read lower than that. Note that the tip fits Leafield valves.

    Q:

    I ordered this valve to add to an older wonder pump which does not have a pressure gauge--thinking I could install it where the screw cap exists in the top of the wonder pump. Alas, no such luck. The fittings are incompatible. The packaging with the gauge says it's compatible with wonder pumps. Am I overlooking something or just screw up?

      The gauge fits current pumps but apparently the threading has changed since your pump was manufactured. Please return the gauge for a refund and we apologize for the inconvenience.

      Answered on 1/13/2014 by Clyde from NRS
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      If in the first line of your message you meant "gauge" when you typed
      "valve", the gauge is not supposed to screw into anything; it just
      presses into an opening, with the spring within the gauge's tube
      pressing the valve stem to open it. Then when the button on the gauge
      is pressed, the pressure is determined. This gauge would not be
      compatible with any pump in the manner you suggest, I think, because it
      does not give a continual readout, but just an instantaneous reading
      when the button is pressed. Trying to pump and press the button at the
      same time would be awkward beyond anyone's patience, I expect.

    Q:

    does this really work, how to reset??
    I bought one and it seems like valve is stuck or something. Even by blowing in, it will read one time and then be 0.0 for the next 10 times... either internal valve is stuck or electronic part is not functioning correctly. any ideas or just return?

      Push "ON" wait for value to appear. Push and Hold "ON" button until you see - - - then release "ON" button. you will then see - 0 - push "ON" button to select 0. the screen will then show 0 0 - push "ON" again to select 0. Then you will see 0 0 0, push "ON" one last time then END will appear on screen. Gauge should now show a starting value of 0.00

      Mine's working fine, though I had some initial puzzlement adapting to
      its simple and input-free functionality. Press "ON", stick it onto a
      valve, read the pressure, take it off, it goes to 0, put it on another
      valve, read the pressure, etc. You don't even turn it off; it does that
      automatically. From my success, your experience suggests that your unit
      is malfunctioning; I'd return it.

      It doesn't sound like yours is in good working order. I have no problems
      with mine, except that I dont use it anymore. I would send yours back for
      an exchange. You should be able to blow in it and get a reading every
      time. The reading will quickly return to zero though while you are turning
      it around to see the display.

      he same thing and I am ready to return it. Too bad as when it does work it is really nice. Since yours has the same symptoms maybe it is a functional pressure issue and it needs a reset. The new question is "how do you reset this ?"

        Comments about NRS Digital Pressure Gauge:

        For those who are trying to figure out how to zero out the gauge. You have to turn on the gauge. Then hold the ON button until you get three bars(- - -) then when you will see - 0 - press the ON button again to select the 0 then you will get 0 0 - then push the ON button again to select 0 then you will get 0 0 0 , Push the ON button one last time and you will see the message END. You have successfully zeroed your NRS digital Pressure gauge. This gauge is great and works really well once you have figured out how to zero it and NRS is as always, extremely helpful if you can not figure it out.

              Good gauge with nice rubber surround to protect it. I love the quality, but like others would have preferred to have the pressure show on the screen for a few seconds before resetting. That was the only reason I gave it 4 stars. Maybe the manufacturer can put that into the next build.
