Gaggia Classic Pressure Gauge Install Video

Recommended Posts

I know there have been a couple is pressure gauge installations described, but I thought I'd share mine. Here you go...

I did it about three years ago but only very recently got round to editing the video. The machine is still going strong, giving me a pressure reading every morning.

Interesting mounting of the capillary tube. Most I've seen have been attached to the inlet pipe with a T-piece.

I've got mine T-pieced as well, however recently got a Selecta Deluxe steam valve which has a self-priming valve fitting which I am considering removing the SPV and mounting the gauge directly to that :)
