Dadovfor Posted December 1, 2008 Report Share Posted December 1, 2008 I've had my 2.5hp compressor maybe a year and each time I've used it (not that often) I always remove the drainage plug and park the compressor in the corner of the garage. However, I realised on the weekend that the drainage hole is obviously not at the lowest point of the compressor and I need to rock it around a bit to ensure all the moisture is removed. With a bit of rocking, I'm guessing a quarter of a cup of murky, rusty water came out. From here on in I'll make sure I tip the thing about a bit when I've finished with it ... but is there anything I should do now? Should I tip a bunch of WD40 or fish oil or rust inhibitor in the bottom of the compressor and swirl it about to try and halt any rust that's commenced? Or is the barrell thick enough that I just need to get it right from now on?? As always ... I'd appreciate your thoughts. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
