Tank Tender Gauge only drops to '10'.

Hi folks.

We have a Tank Tender system with 6 tanks being monitored, in the 9 tank unit.

My problem is that the gauge will not return to '0'. When you release the button, the needle drops back to about 10, and won't go any lower.

So, I am wondering if this is a calibration issue, or is there something wrong with the gauge?

The needle seems to move smoothly when using the pump rod, so it doesn't appear to be corroded or stuck.

I removed the front plastic gauge face, and if you manually move the needle to zero, it quickly goes back to 10 and feels like there is pressure pushing it there.

IS there a calibration screw on these things that anyone would like to tell me about? Or has anyone experienced this issue with these, and would share what this means - please ?

Thank you,
Doug

Does this happen with all tanks or just one?
