PSI/FLow Gauges: TORO v. Sentry Flow Meter

I have gone through 2 Toro pressure gauges in the past 6 months. I have heard that they are junk and have learned the lesson myself. Either the gauge gets stuck or in my last case the casted gate valve cracked open.

I was told about the Sentry Flow Gauges that are a bit costly.

Can someone give me some feedback on what they are using the measure flow and static pressure when designing a system

i dont use the meters, because all around here we have basically the exact same pressuer at every house that differs with about 2 GPM and about 10 PSI so it really doesnt matter when designing. The Sentry Flow gauges are way better and if you are going to be installing systems quite a bit and need testing then that would be the one to go with.
