    Had new water tank installed. No pressure gauge installed on new one. Can I install permanent screw on gauge to drain valve (about 10 in. From tank?

    You can install a gauge anywhere you want.

    Someone would install a tank and not put a gauge on it?

    likely someone who doesn't want to be called in a month when it lies or quits completely. With most systems being outdoors around here, gauges don't have a very good lifespan. If u know how to read a tire gauge, save your 5$.
