Re: Compressor Burnt Up - Rings
You REALLY need to drain the tank regularly. If you are lucky, the tank only gets pinholes in the bottom, and hopefully you stop using it then. If you are not lucky, the tank will literally blow up.
Most people put in the cheapest little T-valve, screwed directly into the tank, so it's a hassle to drain it (have to get down on your knee's, or on your side, open the valve and get a blast of dirt & water in your face).
For a few bucks more, you can get a toggle-style valve with a cable, so you can walk up to the tank and pull on the cable briefly to drain the tank. Works great, and costs less than $10...
