Since you can look in the degas bottle, it is more for the looks?

I would like to have the certainty that the flow if from my coolant filter which is why I would want the sight on one of the lines connecting to the filer housing itself. The flow into the degaussing bottle could be coming from other locations if I am not mistaken

If you are doing it for flow, you need to use a paddle wheel style or some other device that will show the movement. These just show clarity. If the flow stopped with just a sight gauge, you may not know.

Just feel the lines going to/from the filter base. When filter gets clogged, the out going line will be cooler then in going line.

Seems like this would be more for looks, but it does look pretty cool!

Just to be clear, the one you are referring to is only rated to 225*F. That would work for most driving, but doesn't leave much margin for hot engines.

Look for flow in the degas bottle while shutting the output valve on the filter. This has always worked for me once the bottle got clear enough to see thru.

The sight glass can handle up to 225* I'm sure it wont fail till 240* or more and if your running hotter than 225* the last thing to worry about sight glass failing .

I think the idea of the sight glass is not to watch the coolant flow into the degas bottle but by watching the coolant flowing through the sight glass you can tell if your coolant filter is flowing or clogging theirs no other way to see that unless you take the hose off.
