I got my loc line today... hopefully Bobby preassembles the pieces because they are NOT fun to assemble...Of course I'm sure they make a tool or theres some trick I dont know about.
Im excited to try it though.

They do make a tool for it. I didn't find any tricks when I was putting mine together. I tried for a long time and couldn't manage, had given up and was going to order the tool. Then I learned my wife has more upper body strength than I do apparently...

It comes pre-assembled. I got mine today! And now I have to order more stuff from him. Wonder why he's always so busy....

As above, you'd need a 1/2 x 1/4" hex reducing bushing and then a 1/2" tee. Location has a few choices as long as it's between the mash tun drain and the pump inlet. You can put it between your tun and ball valve or you can also make an inline assembly where the front of the tee has a camlock B, the backside has a cam F and the top port has the gauge. This lets you temporarily put it inline and then take it out when you're done recirculating.

No problem and as stated I figured you were just busy and thanks for the reply. Before I order which vacuum gauge is the correct one for a RIMS system? 0-30psi I would guess?
