Sorry to bring up an older thread. I ended up plumbing in one of the standard hardware store air/water filters about 10” from the outlet on the compressor and this seems to be working well. I can’t believe I didn’t think to also plumb a line from the drain to get it out from under the compressor (duh!), so I will do that as well. When I put in the filter I also drained the tank and it had maybe a cup to a cup and a half of water in it which was less than I expected. The reason I didn’t want to dump water on the garage floor is I expected it to be rusty and didn’t want to stain the concrete. Thanks for the tips they were very insightful.
