If your aneroid (non-mercury) barometer suffered cracked or broken glass, it’s replaceable. We have done this countless times. If you think it has not been responding properly to pressure changes, call us for a tip on how to check it at no cost at home. Should it need repair or even a replacement movement, we can handle that for you. 

We have a test chamber and  calibrate barometers for the U.S. Coast Guard and others at our facility. Does the pointer move up and down the scale at the correct rate? We can find out, and furthermore we can almost always adjust the rate to make it quite accurate at all points on the scale.


If you have a mercurial barometer we can refer you to experts for those models.
