>>>I can't see the pic of the Zodiac gauge but does it give you actual psi to within 0.2 or similar?
Sorry Max I wasn't very clear in that other thread... if you look at the link below you can see the Zodiac gauge is a Bravo gauge with no Zodiac markings at all apart from the part number on the packet.... exactly the same gauge as you get if you order a Bravo one from Ebay.
I work in bars but as the gauges are dual scale yes it's possible to judge psi accurately.
Zodiac Pressure Gauge Z67061
>>>It's quite a bit of effort to get to 12 but I could definitely do more, not alot more though.
Sean did yours come with the 2-stage pump where you pull out the plug to "gear" it down for the higher pressure. It should have done then it's really just down to number of strokes rather than foot pressure to get the floor up to and a little over pressure.
