This luddite didn’t know there was such a thing as an automatic drain valve. Quite a cool gizmo.

Before I installed my vertical compressor some 17 years ago, I plumbed the drain petcock to extend out to where I can get to it easily with a pair of pliers. I drain once a month or so, just onto the floor, where it evaporates. This appears thus far to have been an adequate system.

I’ll report back in another 17, which would be 2029. Mark your calendar.
