Need to be able to check pressure - what kind of valve?

I need ot check the pressure of my supply line so I can assure that my hot water heater expansion tank matches it. What kind of valve must I install that has a stem for checking pressure?

You can use something like this...

(cut and paste entire thing into browser)

Should be able to pick one up at home depot or lowes.

Then buy a fitting to go from 3/4" to hose connector. Then you just screw it on to a hose bib and turn it on.
