Whilst there are several differing types of barometer the mercury barometer is the type most commonly found in homes today.

What You Need To Know When Moving A Barometer

Barometers are still commonly found in peoples homes today. Antique ones tend to be a little more complicated and require a bit more care as the mercury tube at the rear is not a sealed unit. There is usually an inspection chamber and this can be opened to view the situation. Sometimes the stopper is made out of glass but for newer ones cork tends to be used. It is worth examining the cork to ensure it has not perished.

Modern barometers are often sealed units that require nothing to be carried out prior to moving other than careful packing.

Ideally all barometers should be packed and kept at a 45 degrees whilst in transport and it is best not to put anything else in the carton with them, other than packaging material.

Top Tips When Moving A Barometer

There should be a cork in place at the rear of the barometer to prevent the leakage of mercury. Ensure that this is in position or if not create a temporary stopper to be used in transit.
