Zodiac mk2 classic - tube pressures

I've just come across a pressure gauge which fits the valves on my tubes......I thought the pressures felt ok to the hand, but the gauge was only reading 1.5psi and I thought the recommended pressure was around the 3-3.2psi.

More footwork on the pump it seems

Can anyone confirm the recommended tube pressures?

Sounds about right to me. A Zodiac owner will give solid assurance, but I recall they take a bit more than mine (2.5psi.)

When I bought my first Classic S the experts at the dealer said stand on the pump until you can pump no more. Remember though, if you take it out into the hot sun afterwards the pressure will increase. I think recommended pressure is around 2-3 psi. I'll see if I can find an old spec sheet.
