Default sight glass for brew system

Anyone have any ingenious sight glasses out there? Id like to see the flow after my pump, maybe before my RIMs tube. Are there any good NPT sight glasses?

the slimline was the only reasonably priced one and at mashout temps it's approaching the limits of the unit. I'll keep it in mind, thanks.
