What will complete the posting for that is getting the piping hooked up to the filter and giving it a go - under pressure to see how it fares as far as leaks are concerned.

Below is a bit better view of the top of the valve and the pressure gauge. I had to build some piping for the gauge as its port is on the very back of the valve. Without some additional fittings and piping, there was no way I was ever going to be able to read the valve. Of course it took a trip to Lano's Hardware out on the Northern Highway in Ranchito for brass and PVC fittings, and downtown to Villa's Imports for the brass nipple before I could connect it properly.

After all that work, I needed a rest. Speaking of resting, here's a shot of Nelson I took yesterday. He's relaxing in my office chair. What a rough life.
