Air compressor Water Seperator
#1
I've tried 2 different water seperators on my compressor and they s$$k. Been running it about 4 hours a day with 1/2 hour breaks each hour of run time and I'm still seeing moisture at the connection fittings. Drain the tank each day before beginning.
Need a tried and true recommendation.

The only way to get rid of all the moisture is to run it through a dryer. For one build prob would not be worth the expense, unless you are planning on painting it yourself.

Just Google air compressor dryer

What two water separators did you buy. I'm kind of in the same situation and trying to decide on which dryer to get. I was looking at this one.

Whenever I start painting I need to use one of these. It gets rid of all the moisture even down here in FL. Filters are cheap as a roll of toilet paper. Not what I'd consider long term use as the filter will get moldy if you leave it too long. I think I paid $95 for it. Very well made.
