Simple remote monitoring of pressure...

Hey guys,

I had low water pressure in my home, so I installed a booster pump which works flawlessly. The question I have relates to the pressure guage on the pump housing specifically.

I want to REMOTELY monitor the pressure on my pump downstairs. It is in another tenants unit, which makes it very difficult for me to access. I know I "could" just run a 1/4" line up through my floor and attach a guage at that point to monitor the pressure or put a camera in front of the guage, but I want to know if there is an electronic pressure guage that I could access say from my PC upstairs, or via a small electronic panel (somewhat like a thermostat panel for a furnace) that is also low cost? I have fairly decent electronics skills, so I could build something myself if anyone has any advice...

Thanks in advance for the help here guys.

There is nothing simple or cheap. Google: pressure transmitter or pressure transducer for more info.

Or go to Princess Auto, they have all kinds of "unique" wild and weird DIY worldly items for sale Eh,
