RIMS Improvements

Here are the improvements I would consider making to my RIMS.

bulletinsert a vacuum gauge after the mash tun, but before the pump to measure the pump suction (does anyone know where I can get one of these, which will be ok with mash running through it?). 
bulletA couple of people have suggested simply putting a site gauge, attached to the output of the mash, rather than going to the expense of a vacuum gauge.  This makes sense to me, as I am wondering how clean the vacuum gauge can get, even with Clean In Place  (CIP) cleaning, which I do.
