Customer Questions & Answers

Adjusting this thing

I have one of these floats and I want to know why it reads empty and when we had them fill the tank it only took 95 gallons to fill? Our tank is 275 gallon. Any ideas? Can the length of the line that the float attaches to be adjusted to go a little farther down?
Asked by: scott
I once had the opposite problem, where the gauge showed half full whereas the tank was almost empty. It turned out that I had my 275 gallon tank placed horizontally, but had accidentally installed a vertical tank gauge. You might want to verify that you don't have the opposite problem; namely, a horizontal tank gauge in a vertically oriented tank.

Can you adjust it

Asked by: Frank
I am not exactly sure on what you want to adjust so I am a little uncertain about how to answer. I can tell you that oil tank gauges are so much accurate but instead consistent. There float does not go all the way to the bottom of the tank because you do not want it to stir up any containment that may collect at the bottom of the tank. So when it reads empty there should still be oil at the bottom of the tank. You don;t want to run the tank empty as it will require that you bleed the oil lines and fuel pump. It is often problematic to get air out of the lines. I have know some people to bend the rods of the gauge actuator to get it to where they want.

i have a275 gallon tank what size gauge do i need

Asked by: cono
Today all new tanks are required by national code to have 4 2" threaded tappings on the top. If you have and older tank it could be smaller. You would need to look at the tank and measure it.

Hight of the Gauge in 2" version

I would like to know what is the height of the Gauge from the 2" thread to the top of the gauge. I am adapting as a level for a container that has a sliding lid and there is limited clearance.
Asked by: Rams
I just went to the warehouse and measured one. I get 41/2" from the base of the threads to the top of the gauge glass. When screwed in to the tank you it will thus be shorter. If you need more info feel free to give me a call and I can send you some pictures via my mobile phone. Thank you chris 978 651 3301

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heating oil gauge Gauge was simple to install, initially indicated tank was empty which was a little concerning as I knew it was full. I started to unscrew it and after one turn, the gauge indicator quickly went up to the full line. I assume I had cranked it one too many turns and it was hitting the bottom of the tank. Easy to read, easy to install, price was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the money if the float were smaller in diameter it would fit through the pipe fitting. current pipe fitting wouldn't have to be removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy Install Beckett is a well known and respected name in the oil heating industry so that is why when I saw the brand on this I knew I could rely on it being a quality product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage This gauge doesn't work as a replecement for any tank where the original gauge can't be replaced. the arm of the old guage is always hitting the arm of the new guage. Why can't they invent a gauge with a straight arm and a floating ball that moives up and down?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, easy to install, accurate. Shopped the internet and Home Depot was the best price for the oil tank gauge with a name brand know for quality.
