First time poster and plumbing Noob (Be gentle).

I've just bought a 110 year old house with my partner and we're doing a lot of the reno work ourselves. We're on a tight deadline to get this home livable over the next few months and I may have jumped the gun and demo'd the old galvanized plumbing before testing out our homes PSI so I can size my water lines.

I've got the main water line entering the home in the basement where I still have the original valve. Just after is where I made my first cut.

What are my options to test the PSI now? Is there something I can attach to the unthreaded pipe to test?

I appreciate your help and TIA!

(I think I'll be posting here a lot during this journey to plumbing enlightenment!)
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
