Hi Mel, all...

...all kidding aside...

If one wanted to do so, how difficult would it be to make a simple Water
Column Sight-Gauge for measuring-monitoring 'low' ranges of Gas pressures?

I would imagine, any 'clear' Polycarbonate or Glass tubing, bent or added to
with something so as to have a 'trap', felt-pen or other inscribed with
empirically arrived at callibrations...would not be hard to make at
all...and would last forever, and would have nothing to 'fail' about
it...and, could be done for about a 'dollar' in parts.
