Peace of mind again!
We’ve been using the pressure pro tyre pressure monitoring system for a while now (see previous article).
We had to decommission them all for a bit because the rubber depressor started to leak.
I contacted the team at Pressure Pro for a solution and they immediately came back with the answer. Great service.
They have developed a replacement depressor that gets fitted with an O ring. I think this works far better than the original idea as the sensor doesn’t have to be screwed onto the valve stem as much and I found it real easy to get the lock nut done up because of the extra room.
Replacing the depressor takes a few minutes. I got the kit which includes an insert tool.

Place O Ring in Place: Needs to be Manipulated to Fit
- Push O ring into place with insert tool. Ensure O ring goes down to below the threaded portion of the sensor.
- Refit sensor. Check for leaks. I use a mix for soapy water. Do up lock nut.
- All this can be done within the time the system allows for the sensor to be off.
- Get rid of the old depressors!!
Refitted system back into one of our Discoveries. Used the Pressure Pro sun visor mount. Hard wired the unit into the interior light system as this is direct battery fed fused system.
