    I ordered a Hunter pitot gauge as I wanted to see what it does etc.

    How do you use it and interpret the reading you get?

    Read off the gauge that comes with it, change to smaller nozzles if the psi is too low.
    Prepare to get wet. If those are PGPs you're testing, seems Hunter made one that fit in the nozzle holder.
