    Morning,

    Anyone using a regin u gauge, the top quality one that uses blue liquid?

    I'm thinking of getting myself one but they are about 70 quid.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    Nope. I use a digital when calibrated and a standard rothenburger

    No.
    I bought an HSG Guage (single tube type) about 20 years ago that I found out had potentially carcinogenic blue liquid in it.
    I have a few others too

    But:-
    I use one of these for most things

    What benefit will the blue one give?

    Vimto?
    Is that not the answer?

    It's the answer to more than vision problems is Vimto.
    For example, a hot Vimto on a winters day is nice. Or hot c-vit.
    Or hot ribena.

    When was the last time you had a hot one Harvest?

    What about OXO ?
    Anyone like an OXO with white pepper in?

    More of a Bovril man myself. But the wife loves a hot Ribena.

    Is Bovril not the same as OXO for flavour?
    Never tried it!

    Getting back on the blue liquid. I don't know if it is the same stuff but the blue hsg fluid in the gauge I have is very expensive.
    The gauge was over £80 20 years back and I am sure the fluid was very very expensive too.
    It's another reason I don't use it. I was always bothered about damaging it.

    Cracking gauges mate , love mine , never use anyliser.

    As for the liquid .. we tend to compare liquid in gallons i.e . Petrol , diesel , beer , milk etc etc , that blue liquid if my maths is correct works out a out 8/9 k a gallon , wow ! ( my maths aint good I may add )

    So you have the blue gauge!
    What possessed you to buy it?
    Was it the colour?
    The quality?
    That it makes you look like a Dr?


    Is it High specific gravity (hsg) fluid or just a coloured fluid?

    Can it freeze?

    Sorry about this, I have spotted them before and like the idea but the price put me off.

    You get what you pay for, personally my regin has proved faultless & i have only had to refill fluid twice in 5yrs.

    Once the meter regulator was knackered & blew it straight out the top before i could switch valve off & second time was when i didn't put the plugging piece back in and it was lying in the gas toolbox on it's side & leaked out.

    Still got spare bottle of the fluid which is a specific gravity fluid specially calibrated for the regin manometer.

    Would not use anything else,

    Cheers,

    Andy

    Defo never frozen , at 8K a gallon for the blue stuff
    it better not . Incredibly easy to read , steel construction, streets ahead of the plastic.
    If it got nict tomorrow I would go buy another one in a breath.
