Our pressure bomb is from Soilmoisture Equipment Corp. in Santa Barbara, CA
- they call their instrument a 'Plant Water Status Console', Model
3005-1412.  The numbers I have for them from 1990 when we ordered the
instrument are: tel., 805-964-3525 and FAX, 805-683-2189.

This unit has worked well for us.
