Placing an inline water trap at the compressor did not work for me (I think because the air exiting the compressor is too hot for the water to condense). Next, I strongly encourage you to drain your compressor often for 2 reasons: to keep water out of your airtools and spray; second, to keep your pressure tank from rusting out and exploding! I plumbed mine to the edge of the base where I could get to the valve easier and then connect a piece of tubing to drain water away from the compressor.
