Weldless Sight Gauge Stainless Steel 
By popular request of an affordable sight gauge, we have added several economy sight gauges to our website. These are very easy to install, all you will need is a 7/8" hole in your kettle and will come with a full set of instructions. These sight gauges will fit most kettles up to 15 gallons, they are approximately 18" from the top of the elbow. If you would like us to custom cut one for your kettle please choose this option below. It is easy to cut to the exact length with a pipe cutter taking small adjustments at a time or simply by using a table saw or hacksaw.  
Sight Gauge Includes:
1/2" FPT Stainless Steel Elbow
18" Poly-Carbonate Tubing
1- Set of Vinyl Graduation Stickers (2-15)
1/2" MPT x 1/2" Compression Stainless Steel Fitting
Stainless Steel Flat Washer
1/2" Stainless Steel Close Nipple
315 Silicone Washer
1/2" Stainless Steel Lock Nut
Optional Eye bolt allows you to attach the sight tube to your kettle, all you will need is a 1/4" drill bit and drill to do this. It is not always necessary to do this depending on how straight your coupling is welded to the kettle, we offer a 3" and 4" eye bolt, please see options below.
Cleaning Your Sight Tube:
A simple occasional light cleaning with your favorite cleaner and a 3/8" nylon hose brush is all you need to do. See option below if you don't already have one.
If you are doing deep cleaning of more than 30 minutes, it is recommended to remove the sight gauge and install a hole plug during this cleaning period because extended contact of cleaning detergents could cause the poly-carbonate to crack.
Avoid direct flame contact and use a heat shield if necessary to avoid excessive heat to your sight gauge, the poly-carbonate tubing has a  rating of up to 250 degrees. Paying attention to  avoid both of these will increase the life of your sight gauge for many brews!

Does the Job With a Little Modification
Worked great for the keg conversion I did. The numbers were nice and big. I had to use a little more parts to get this water tight like another high temp o ring and another washer. I did a calibration to 13 gals when making my next batch of beer and it held 13+ gallons like a champ.

Another o-ring needed
Agreed with the last reviewer. I had the same issue and bought an extra o-ring from the local HBS. Other than that it works as advertised. And the label markers go on easy and work well.

The included hardware is not enough to prevent leaking where the gauge meets the kettle. Luckily I had some nylon washer and rubber gaskets from my old weldless brew kettle which fixed the problem. I hate to give a low rating on this because it does what it needs to, it is just the included hardware is not enough to stop it from leaking.
