Re: Air Compressor setup in my garage help

We're adding a "jump house" to our compressor systems now? Wow! Helluva fun storage tank add on!

Hey, I need non $150 recommendations for a combo wall mount regulator & water separator. Harbor Freight is very near me and I'm tempted to use them but I know the opinion of their stuff. Anyone better that reasonably priced?

Re: Air Compressor setup in my garage help

Here is the article Jimmy referenced above. It is a good read...especially since I do a little powder coating also.

Re: Air Compressor setup in my garage help

Well, since you brought this thread back from the dead, I still suggest a horizontal back and forth rather than vertical to make the water stay in the tank or go the dryer. Anyone will regret doing the vertical crap with many valves once they have it in place. All those valves have to be cracked after every compressor use after the air has cooled and water condensed. Wait a week and that blown out water will be black and on your wall. Bad design.
