Here is a link to the sight glass that I currently have installed...they have others including plastic. If you buy one make sure its glass.

Robert,
Thanks. I ordered one to have on hand. You never know. My current one has some sediment stuck to it inside, so if I get motivated I might just change it.

Looks the same to me, and it's quite a bit cheaper

Just a heads up. The original sight glass had straight thread sealed with an o-ring. These ones are tapered NPT threads. I didn’t like the way the new one stuck out from the tank. I chased the female with an NPT tap to get it to seal correctly and seat in far enough. You can decide whether it matters to you or not. I replaced mine with a boiler sight glass for $20.
