Re: [T3] air compressors


<x-flowed>I get what I think is a decent amount of water coming from the petcock, particularly during the winter time. If Sears says drain it every time it's used then I'll do it, I don't want rust or any other metal weakening going on in it. It's a 240-volt, 130psi compressor and fills the 60 gallon tank rather quickly (if I actually need that much capacity) so pressure build-up isn't a concern.

When done using it, turn off and release all air inside except the last 20psi, then open petcock valve to let drain.


Why release all the air? I don't think there's any harm in leaving most of the compressed air in there after you blow out the water.
