Have you drained the water out of it lately?
What make is it?

Is your compressor equipped with a line regulator and is set to a limit of 60?

Is your compressor's belly valve (air bleed/water drain valve) fully closed?

it is a magnum brand, i currently have the drain valve open to see if that helps but i think i have done that already and it didnt help... the regulator is not set at 60 it is set at 120

You prolly have a check valve sticking or going bad:furious:
