Try and find yourself a ball valve to replace that cheap petcock thing, 
you'll be happier you did. Drain it after using, and sometimes during use depending 
on temperature and humidity. My 80 gallon unit that I use for working on my 
type3s had one of those cheap petcock valves, and that was the first thing I 
replaced on it. I've been happy since, and the ball valve works so much better. 
: ) I hope this helps.
