Very nice. This is how clean I want my build to be.

My new doctor said he wanted to check out my plumbing so I dropped my pants. Did I misunderstand? He did fondle my nuts so I am not so sure now.

They are used to look at what's flowing through them, that's the sight part :P

You can use them to see the color and clarity in a closed system, and to verify oxygenation is taking place by watching the bubbles. Plus they look really frickin sweet.

I was able to figure out the sight glass part was for sight. I just was not sure what the other reason would be other than the bling factor. Thanks for clearing that up for me

Sight glasses are beneficial for several reasons, some of which allow you to see clogs or obstructions in the flow of wort, , clarity , and help with the priming of any pumps you may have in your system loop , I really wouldn't do with out them anymore, I have three of them and they are critical to my brewing operations, they are pretty reasonable in price too , considering the amount of stainless and the machining , don't discount them just as bling, they are extremely helpful.
