compressor water
I run my compressor threw two water filters, one rite on then a water filter and oiler. I still get water. How do I fix this?

Drain the tank more often.

Thanks, I do keep the tank clear. I can leave it open a little and I still get water. Any other ideas? Mack

what are you doing that a little water causes problems? Are you spraying paint with and oiled compressor? If you realyu nesed it dry I have had luck with disiposable filter for singel use paint spraying.

Thanks for getting back to me. I have two water filters and a oiler, I still get water. I was just trying to see if I was doing some thing wrong in the way I have it hooked up. Iam just using air tools for now, water comes spitting out. I live near Ft. Lauderdale could be the heat.

not the heat...the humidity. as your compressor sucks in air to compress it also compresses the water vapor that is in the air.

biggest thing is to make sure you keep your tools oiled or the water will kill them.
