Pressure Gauge Testing at the Kenai Office

Dial gauges on pressure canners need to be tested for accuracy every year.  This free service is offered at the Kenai Peninsula District Extension Office in Soldotna.  You don't have to bring your whole canner in, but the gauge can still be attached to your lid.  General gauge testing hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.  If you are making plans, please call ahead to ensure someone is in to test your gauge, 262-5824, or you're welcome to drop it off and pick it up at a later date/time.
